It’s been about 4 years since I reached 1000 hikes. Since then, there have been no celebrations. I knew it was my 1500th hike, and I knew that we would celebrate, but I was not aware of the extent. Janie made brownies, so I was sure we would have a little time after the hike.
After the hike, everybody quickly left. I guessed that everybody had their own things to do, and wouldn’t hang around to eat the brownies. Of course I thought that this would mean more brownies for me.
Janie told me we should go to the park, so I knew then that everybody from the hike would be there. The park is always a good celebration spot. Little did I know that a LOT more people were going to be there also. Here’s some pictures of the celebration.
I guess everybody had sent in pictures to use on a giant collage. I collected all of the pictures, and Janie gave me more that she received, and I added them to this gallery. I hope you have as much fun looking at them as I do.
Abu went WAY out of his way to have a plaque made. It’s really cool. I hope everybody gets one of these someday because it’s a great thing to hang on the wall.
Lots of people wanted to thank me for doing what I do for the group. I just do what I can to help make our group fun and enjoy the company of people who love the same things as I do. So I think the gratitude is going the wrong way. It is I who owe everybody my gratitude for coming out and joining the celebration.
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR COMING OUT AND CELEBRATING MY MILESTONE. THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO BROUGHT FOOD AND DRINKS. THANKS FOR ALL OF THE GIFTS.
