Change of Winds

@ VOL 29 ON FEB 23, 2017

Wake up at dawn, emerge from tent, brew a pot of tea, make breakfast, consult maps and plan, pack up camp, find water, forage for wild edibles, cycle all day ....


Find more water, make camp before dark, wash clothes ... make dinner, make another pot of tea, tie food up in tree, sleep or maybe just pass out.  Repeat until reach destination. 

If that didn't exhaust you just reading it you won't believe the trials and rhythm David Quiring put himself through for an experience.

Justin Quigley sjares lessons learned from planning a HUGE winter activity challenge, starting winter run commuting, and packing for a not-so-chilly February. "Pre-planning is key", he says "but so is not trying to change your whole life while planning a whole event."

Broms the Poet

@ VOL 29 ON FEB 23, 2017

There are no words to describe this, just listen to Jeff Bromley and enjoy the journey.

Sit down. Be quiet.

@ VOL 29 ON FEB 23, 2017

Take a page from Brent Manke's book and enjoy the life you have, slow down and take it in.  Rushing everywhere we go never allows us to enjoy the journey.  The things you miss along the way may just one day be what lands you up on the Pechakucha stage.  

Is anyone missing a red glove? If so, he'll be around.
