Day 16

The big news... Access Hollywood is going to be here this week to do a piece on Seth and Erik. I guess there is a chance I might be on TV?!?!?

Some advice for those that have plans to come to the ridge. Although this is a place where you assume everyone wants to be here and will be positive and upbeat, it just isn't realistic. The negativity and complaining can be contagious if you let it because you're sore and tired and it can be easy to join in.  I'm almost to my breaking point with it.  You really have to work hard to keep your distance from those people. You're here to do your own thing and just because someone else complains constantly doesn't mean to have to agree, or even listen to it. Just say no!! : )

Oh, I went on my first non-stop-sign-or-101 hike today.  I did the intermediate hike and we went to Chuckawalla. (See pics) The view was really pretty and the sun finally came out. I got right to the edge of the drop off and was pretty scared, but I wanted a picture of it. The hike was hard though, ups and downs, soft sand, rocks, etc. It did a number on my feet, again, but I'm glad I went. I think I'll try another intermediate hike tomorrow, to another place, depending on how my feet feel in the morning.
