Did you know that if you hike all 798 miles of State Forest Hiking Trails in Pennsylvania, they give you an award?
Well, they do. You get a certificate, a patch, and a “ceremonial walking stick.”
I would really like to have my very own ceremonial walking stick.
I’d also like to finish walking all of the Appalachian trail in Pennsylvania. All together, it comes out to about a thousand miles of walking.
At the end of this, I will be a grizzled old mountain man.
With a ceremonial walking stick.
You will all, no doubt, be greatly jealous of my grizzled manliness, and of my walking stick. If you ask nicely, I will whack you in the head with it.
My walking stick, that is. Not my grizzled manliness.
