Remember the post about SMART Goals? Of course you do. You read all my posts religiously. You probably even take notes.
Yes, I snort at my own jokes. Someone has to.
But don’t worry, I won’t even make you follow the link to see what the hell I’m talking about. I heard about SMART goals from the amazing Dr. C., my totally awesome family doctor who rescued the story of the therapist from hell.

So for the moment, I’m looking for ideas. And I am *TOTALLY* open to suggestions.
Any ideas for great walking/hiking vacations?
