Today I made a big purchase….for the hike. I have my back pack, tent, and footprint coming in the mail. I am so so so excited.
These are the last of the BIG purchases I will need before setting aside to see the little details I must gather. I cannot wait to get going. Once my pack arrives I am loading it up and going to just wear it like another set of new clothes. I hope that I have enough strength to hike and sleep and endure the elements. Will I be able to wait another year to set out on the trail and be satisfied with short hikes
through the summer and fall? I don’t know as more supplies arrive on my porch I just can’t see to hang onto this world and find much in it right now. I am focused on getting a move on and putting miles behind me. I feel that most people do not realize that this is something I must do not something that I am just doing. I need to be out there and just walk and think and be in the woods. I need to rest, heal, and regain who I am again. Well this post is getting a bit personal but I am turning this blog into the blog about the hike so I have to get my feelings out there and prepare. So for now I survive work and rest in the Lord….he will see me through it all.
