I miss summiting mountains, climbing rocks, reaching gorgeous views that I can see for leagues (roughly 3 miles). I miss seeing the valleys, the rivers, the highways. I love to see birds of prey soaring. Clouds are very fun to be in, you can’t see ten feet in front of you, and it’s a little damp. When the clouds pass, it just seems that fresh life is everywhere. I also miss canoeing down rivers, with a supply of food, water, myself and the wildlife. Cycling is a big thing for me too. I have been pushing the miles, but I am planning to start hiking again since my physical therapist assistants gave me the go ahead. I just need to figure out where to go now.
Employment is important to me to. I would love to work for an outdoor company like REI, or maybe for an Outward Bound School, working gear testing, and logistics, respectively. This summer I may attempt a two week solo backpacking trip somewhere on the East Coast of the United States. I need to find myself, and figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life.
I know this is a longer post than normal, but I’d rather write this than tell any one person.
