No way I’m letting the humans have all the blogging fun! I hear all this talk about Trekker Poles, Tech-wick shirts and all that. We go to EMS so often they might be justified in charging us rent! Sure I love that Dad has a super Water Filter pump to make sure we can all drink as often as we’d like on the way up. Yes his snazzy “Shantz” have pockets aplenty for my gear too (read Charlee Bears!) and absolutely I want the big lug to put a trekking pole on the ground opposite me to help him find the points I’m showing. I’m glad the calorie-counters have added Quinn kibble increases into the mix as well – mmm, extra-hard work means extra food for me! In short I give full credit to all that equipment for the general hiker.
We are not and I am most certainly not the typical hiker! So what I’m most excited about is getting a chance to show the world the best piece of ‘equipment’ for Dad: one Mighty Quinn Guiding Eyes Guide Dog. Sure my school doesn’t necessarily sanction pups for Mountain Hiking but I do have all the curbside, staircase, low branch, door-finding, obstacle-dodging, time-saving daily routines down already. I really want to show my work leading him up the hardest challenges. I love the woods and the scents on the breeze but nothing compares to knowing how much we are accomplishing together with our teamwork and my steadfast focus and devotion.
So how about helping my credibility here. I’m officially taking questions about my preparations and the work I’ll be doing on Washington. Think you can stump me? I can handle anything. Ask away – Quinn is In!
