I am very happy to say ankle fusions are on the way out right now. Ankle replacements are coming into their own. I would still hold off a year or two before I advise any one to get one though. Most ortho Doc's haven't done many yet and there are new devices in the approval stages.

Two nights to Liberty Springs Campground!? 2.9 miles? 

If you're moving at 1.5 miles a day you probably should not be hiking at night, not above treeline, and definitely not alone.

I've had four boring ones left since 1976.   Once I started rock climbing, hiking up Mount Cabot sounded about as appealing as disco dancing.

Think of it as a walk in the woods with Ella. 
Or training, with her on your back, up and down.  Do laps as necessary! :)
