A giant rattlesnake I almost sat on

My legs were trembling…

I could hardly catch a breath…

I was even feeling a little bit dizzy at times…

However I did not want to stop…

Each step I took I got closer to the summit…

Where was I ?

Climbing Mount Baldy in California last week…

In fact this was the first time I’d ever done a serious hike like this…

This was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done…

But boy oh boy was the view worth it….

 

We set off at 11.30am and it was already blazingly hot.

We then hiked for 10 miles to the summit, 10,000 feet high…

Along the way I encountered lots of strange things ranging from…

Dogs with backpacks!! , guess that’s one way to carry your supplies…

A giant rattlesnake which I almost sat on!!!

A couple of parents who had lost their children, I hope they found them…

And a young couple who had completely run out of water…

Luckily we were only about 45 minutes away from the car…

So we all clubbed together and donated all of our water to the young couple…

They were very grateful…..

By the time we got back to the car it was 6:30 PM…

I could hardly lift my legs to get in the car!!

But I had a deep feeling of satisfaction…

Here’s something I did not expect…

Yes it was really hard doing this hike…

It really required some serious willpower….

However I really want to do it again?

In fact I am thinking about joining some hiking groups here in the UK….

Things I learned

Make sure you’re prepared and bring plenty of water…

Get some proper hiking shoes… I was just using my sneakers!

As a result I have three blisters on my feet…

Lose weight whilst vacationing in America?

Whilst I was in California I actually lost quite a lot of weight…

This was mainly because each day I was getting plenty of exercise…

  • Walking
  • Hiking
  • Running
  • Swimming each day in the sea…
  • Cycling
  • kayaking

I think my record was 33,000 steps in one day…

I also did a 48-hour fast, see the video diary’s on my Facebook page..

I was also eating a very healthy vegan diet…

On the 4th of July we took the RV to the beach…

Whilst at the beach we,

– Had a barbecue, I cooked hamburgers for everybody…
– Lots of swimming
 Did a bit of body surfing
 Boogie boarding, mini surfboards
 A 12 mile bike ride
 Sunbathing
 And we ended the evening with a huge firework display

I really loved how patriotically the Americans are…

Whilst we were on the beach everybody kept wishing us happy fourth…

And giving us high-fives….

I feel really privileged to of experienced the 4th of July…

The first of many I hope…

Making money whilst on vacation

So whilst I was enjoying the 4th of July…

And the entire month I was away…

I did not see any dip in revenue…

This is all thanks to having an email list…

Have a great week whatever you’re doing,

I’m going to pop out now for a walk…

And enjoy the warm weather we are experiencing here in London…

I want to make the most of it before it starts to rain again…

All the best,
