You should always have a few “Buddies” to do life with.

I love to hike and I have a few hiking buddies that I like to hike with.

There are times I may hike alone, but hiking with a Buddy is fun and a great way to challenge each other.

Not only do you get to share the awesome beauty and experience of the hike, but you get to have some great conversations and laughs along the way.

Hiking is like a dance, sometimes you lead and other times your buddy may lead. You just naturally flow up the mountain. When it’s time to rest, you both are ready to stop to catch your breath.

Together you watch the weather and make decisions to continue with the hike, or retreat so you don’t get struck by lightning.

You share snacks along the way to replenish your energy.

You have each others back in case one of you slip or fall. You are there to support each other along the way. There is an unspoken trust between you and your Buddy.

At the summit you and your Buddy share the sense of accomplishment and a memory has been etched into your heart and mind forever. Afterwards at the car, looking back up at the mountain you know you made it with your Buddy! That’s the best feeling of all.

Amanda was my hiking Buddy on this day. We bagged 3 of 4 – 14ers: Bross, Lincoln, and Cameron. Democrat had to wait because of the weather.

Let’s call today Appreciate your Buddy day!

Love and hugs,

  1. I think a buddy can be a pet, because I have a dog named Buddy, because he is my buddy, but I have 4 more dogs, but only he is my buddy….he became my Buddy because when he came tome he had had a hard life by three yers old, now he is 13 years old, and still is spunky, playing with my other chihuahua, Vida Bella, who is three years old now. They are good buddies too, and both sleep with me in their beds, at the foot of my bed. Oh yeah for buddies!
