A few years ago, when I was attending a Chamber of Commerce meeting, I met a young lady during the networking time. When I told her that I was the author of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles Cincinnati she just stared at me for a moment.
Then she told me one of the most awesome stories of how my book has affected other people.
See her boyfriend and her would go on hikes together using 60 Hikes within 60 Miles Cincinnati as a guide. They enjoyed hiking and just being outside together.
Then one day, her boyfriend gave her a clue. The clue was referring a hike that they had been on. She had to go through the book to find the next clue, something like, “Do you remember the waterfall?”
This went on for a while. Each time she found the hike that they had been on, there was another clue that lead her to the next hike.
She became so engrossed in finding out where this was going that she didn’t notice that her boyfriend was no longer standing.
He was kneeling with a ring, waiting for her to get to the last hint.
SERIOUSLY – HOW AWESOME IS THAT!
Tell us your story of hiking and how it has affected you.
