It took me 64 years on earth to become a grandparent, but it was worth the wait. Little Rosalia Kathryn Judy appeared five days before Christmas and changed the world for all of us who love her. Her parents have a passion for nature and adventure inherited from generations before them, and I have little doubt that Rosie will eventually discover that much of what matters comes from roaming the open road of adventure. “Man’s real home is not a house, but the Road, and that Life itself is a journey to be walked on foot.” With parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to inform her trek, I suspect this child is on the brink of a journey lived within the most thrilling generation in human history. I plan to stay vertical and keep walkin’ for as long as I can, because I want to watch her living her dream. And though she will make up her own mind how she does it, I will certainly be available to take hikes any time she’s interested!
