It’s been far too long since my last adventure post.
I have been working a lot for part of the last three and a half months.
Today, I needed to get out and go, and get back into the woods. I am trying to work up to longer and more intense hikes.
Today was a perfect day for a hike. It started off at about 33 / 34 degrees (~1c) and by the time I finished the 2.25-mile (3.62km) hike, a little over an hour later, it had warmed up to about 39 (~3c). I had started out with a long sleeve tee shirt, a sweatshirt and a jacket over that. by about halfway through, I was too hot and took the jacket off.
The last year or so, I lost sight of what makes me, well me, and what I want to be doing in life.
Besides the fact that I love hiking, the great outdoors, living a simpler and more meaningful life, part of what keeps me going is seeing other normal young women going hiking in amazing places, and doing amazing things, it also reminds me that I can do it too, and not be afraid to live the life I am supposed to be living. There is more to life than living a “comfortable”, boring life in suburbia doing the same thing day after day, without doing something to better this world.
