Tried out my new backpack during the training hike last weekend, which reminded me of the luxuries of trekking. Not much weight to carry, a cozy sleeping spot all set up for you at the end of the day, no cooking required, and the food and drink is generally delicious. As opposed to backpacking, where you set up and deconstruct camp every day, carry all of your gear, and eat that which weighs the least and cooks the fastest.

May 13 marks the 1.5-year anniversary of my ablation and becoming AFib-free. Maybe I'll climb "my little mountain" across the street to celebrate. So many thanks to Dr. Marrouche and the CARMA Center team who gave me my youth back.

We just got a big pile of maps in the mail covering the various parts of Monaco, France and Italy we will be trekking through this summer.
