  1. I know it’s going to be a big change this year, but you’ll never lose your “inner backpacker.” That’s what visits from old hiking buddies and hiking shorter trails are for. Chin up, this year is going to be great. You just have to find your place. Good luck!

  2. Oh man, buddy. It’s going to be a huge relief to see you at ALDHA next month. I feel like I haven’t seen my through-hiking friends in way too long. I think next month has a lot of potential for awesomeness. Foliage, cool weather, hikes in NH and VT… Heck yeah!

    Only having a faint clue to what you are doing and how you are going to do it counts as an adventure to me, just a different one. Variety is the spice of life, trying something different is scary though. Sharing time with someone you really care for and who cares for you is a truly great adventure. Put your heart and soul into it and you will have a blast!

  4. It’s true, Karl. And oddly enough, life off the trail is a lot more unpredictable than life on the trail. It helps that we got lucky and found a really nice, little apartment in a town that’s just the right size. I tend to look too far into the future, though, so not knowing what’s coming up is often stressful for me. I’m still working out the kinks in the “normal life.” 🙂
