Today we start our summer adventure. This morning I have spent packing up all of my hiking gear, and in a couple of hours we will be on Amtrak headed for East Glacier, Montana. After a day spent with a friend there we will be setting foot upon the Continental Divide Trail, starting a five month journey of being immersed in nature!
I hope to have the opportunity to do updates along the way, and share with everyone the beauty and magic that we have been experiencing along the way.
I thought I would address one of the most common questions I am asked when we are on such a journey. People often ask me how we can afford to take so much time off from work to do something like this. The truth of the matter is that I take time off from my life to work when I need to. My focus is living the most vibrant life that I can. We live very simply, and so we require relatively little money in our day to day life.
When my savings does happen to run low I take the time to settle in one spot and work for a few months. For me the focus is to enjoy each day of my life. The question I ask, is how can you not take time to do the things that you are passionate about? There are so many ways to live life, and experience all kinds of wonders without needing a huge savings account. There are endless opportunities to follow your dreams, what do you want to do?
I look forward to sharing with you the experience of hiking a long distance trail!
Follow along as I share highlights of the adventures that bring me such joy in life, and the wisdom they have imbued into my being.
