Don't I know it (muscle aches). I've been fighting a neck injury for a year which is finally better (I think). I'm now a year older and even more out of shape than when I started, which at my best...

Wow. What a difference, I have spent the majority of my camping and hiking time trying not to become wet, hypothermic, frozen or somehow submerged in a fast flowing stream. Just back from Joshua...
