Wishy Washy

Today, I am hiking the Colorado Trail...or so I think!

Tomorrow, I am going to go an exotic vacation with my husband...or so I think!

Finally, I have decided it is time to give back to the community. So, instead of hiking the Colorado Trail this summer, I am going to help build/repair some of our major trails. American Hiking Society has what they call Volunteer Vacations. Basically, you pay money to go stay in the woods and build/repair some of the most beautiful trails in our country. I am looking forward to being what I always referred to as the true Trail Angels of the Appalachian Trail...the trail maintainer! It should be rewarding.

When I looked at the Colorado Trail and where my life is at the moment, I realized now is not the time. In another 4 years, I will be hopefully hiking the PCT, and right now I need to work on my finances to make such a journey easier. So, to be able to help maintain the trails and possibly in the future be a crew leader for such excursions would be a dream come true.

Every day is a journey of adventure. I meet people of all walks of life from my bus commute to my retail position. They all inspire me and touch me in some way whether they know it or not. I look forward to giving back to the world the true goodness of my heart! It is always obtained by helping share nature with others!
