Another 8 Miles Recapped!

Better late than never!  I have been remiss in writing up some adventure stories over the past few months!  April 6th was a glorious weather day and the perfect day for our second 8 mile section of the Perry Lake Trail.  We started at Hog Holler Saloon to check in and load up the Party Hike Bus and head to the trailhead for the day.  We enjoyed a warm and gorgeous spring day along the trail.  53 hikers took the trail for this adventure!  Over hill and dale we tramped through the woods of Northeast Kansas.

Dirty Girls, Dirty Dudes and Dirty Kids discovered the great outdoors, new friends and interesting sights along the trail.  The terrain was pretty mild in comparison to the previous section of the trail so we moved pretty quickly, covering the 8 miles in less than three hours!

Dirty Girls and their Dirty Peeps don’t give up.  Instead, they work to know their own needs and pace.  It is important to challenge ourselves to improve but it is also important to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments along the way.  If your distance is 1 mile, 3 miles or 8 miles you deserve a WOO WOO for getting your butt off the couch, out of the house and onto the trail!  Keep it moving!  Catch up with a Dirty Peep and get it moving!

Check out these gorgeous and adventurous Dirty Kids!  The rock beach along the trail is a highlight of this section.  I am planning to spend a bit of time relaxing here this summer, possibly with my kayak!

The Perry Lake Trail is maintained by a volunteer organization called The Kansas Trail Council.  What a great group of workers!  We are loving the trail and the adventure their work allows us! Plus, these bridges are a great photo opp!

The coolest thing about a Dirty Girl Adventure is that it is full of fabulous!  We are all supportive of each other, accepting of differences and invested in quality time for ourselves and each other.  We are not just exercising, we are exploring!  There is quite a bit of WOOO WOO-ing along the trail as well as random guessing as to how far we have traveled!  We were happy to have a couple of support stops along the tail to refill our water and ring the cow bell to celebrate our progress.  Thanks to the Dirty Minions and the Token Male!  It’s always nice to have support and encouragement along the journey!

While we were at Hog Holler, we enjoyed a variety of food and beverages and CHECK THIS OUT!!  We are on the register with a 20% Discount!  It’s like we’re famous or something!  Thanks Clay for the Dirty Girl Discount on event days!  Hog Holler is a great venue!  It was very rewarding to be greeted and cheered by various folks when we arrived.  Two Dirty Girls joined up after watching the fun times as we rolled into Hog Holler!  Yay!  The Dirty Girls can’t wait for some hot summer days on the porch post kayaking!
