A Walk in the Woods
A Walk in the Woods

Following hot on the heels of ‘Wild’, Bill Bryson’s ‘A Walk in the Woods’ is soon to hit the big screen with Robert Redford in the starring cast. Della will want to see this. I admit I enjoyed the book, though I suspect I would enjoy the walk even more, so long as too many others aren’t enjoying it at the same time! The Appalachian Trail certainly sounds lovely. A friend especially recommends the ‘White Mountains’ section if I can’t do the whole thing – likely. It IS a long while to be away from home; I generally find 7-14 days quite enough, especially if Della can’t accompany me, which owing to her eyesight is increasingly the case – though she should be fine on a well-marked, well-maintained trail such as this. Perhaps next year: http://gearjunkie.com/walk-in-the-woods-movie
