Going Loopy

This should be a nice little stroll !
It has been the best weather the last couple of days so we headed off to one of MY far away parks again and found all these neat trails we haven't been on before....which of coarse meant we totally LOST. We thought we would check out Spider Creek trail - the sign said  it was a .75 of a mile trail - easy enough - so off we went. Up and down hills, round ledges, down steps, up steps and winding all over of the place before we finally came across a sign that said "LOOP" with arrows pointing both left and right. What a dilemma - which way to go - me I just headed right and Mom and Dweeb followed. Now Mom in all her wisdom figured 'loop' meant the path would just go around and come back to where we started - WRONG! The loop also had paths intersecting it which made it hard to work out if you were still on right path - which we weren't. Two hours later with all of us panting and Mom fearing she would have to carry the Dweeb we finally made it back to the LOOP sign (which Mom felt like tearing down and stomping on - she restrained herself though) Let us just say the .75 of a mile back to the car was the longest ever !
Come on Woman - At least try to keep up !
Really - you need ANOTHER rest Mom!


  1. No way Katie would have gone that far with being carried some of the way. She shuts down at just over 1 mile! You guys did good to make it out of there! :)

  2. OMD if that was my peeps we'd be ringing the police or we would be there all night. Glad you found your way back in the end. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Hmmmmm...sounds like someone just painted the dot on the 75 and it was really a 75-mile Loop! :)

  4. Oh WOW! I absolutely love your walk on the trails - that is so cool. Mom is looking into some spots that we can go. She's going to buy Houdini either a pouch or back pack she can carry or a small stroller. Cause you know, the little guy can't walk as far as we will. Should be fun - ya'll have encouraged us.

  5. Who made up that stupid sign????

    We knew you two would get Mom back home safely.

  6. Mom said she would have had to carry ALL three of us back to the car! You guys are strong!!!

  7. Eeek, two hours is a long time! You must have had a very long rest after you found your way back!

  8. What a scary adventure. I am not sure that mom could care me that long.

  9. We don't like getting lost. Mom talks of heart attacks and corinaries

  10. at least you saw no spiders :o) I'm glad you found the way back and you all are ok (and the sign too lol). sometimes it isn't easy to find the right way... we had to learn that too as we were lost in a giant corn field (fortunately without Randall Flagg).

  11. OMD that is not a good sign to go in circles. Next time you guys will know the way and not get lost.

  15. Wow! That was quite the walk! Glad it wasn't too hot out.

    I've been lost many times in the woods. It's not a good time, until its over - then you laugh about it.

  16. We have a big park we love but Mom always gets lost there too and doesn't trust us to get back out to the car. Maybe if my tracking gets better she will trust me more.

  17. SHE would have thought loop meant a loop, too!

    Glad you made it back okay. That was SOME walk.

  18. Some trails happen like that!
