Just a quick post.
My daily routine might be interesting.
3:45-4:15am wake and break camp.
6:15 oat meal breakfast
8:15 break and snack
12-2:30pm nap in the shade
2:30-5:30 serious speed hike for the evening push
5:30-6:30 look for camp site while hiking
6:30-7 dinner and set up camp
7-3:45 sleep like a baby
This seems like a regimented time line but in all actuality these times are approximate and subject to change with out notice.
There is tons of free time to meditate while walking. I think about things like when do humming birds actually sleep? How did my fathers love affect us kids? Why is customer service so fake in America while being genuine in Costa Rica? Will my children forgive me for the many mistakes I’ve made? We are all born naked and buried in the ground, do our lives actually change the momentum of anything? And so many more topics of little significance combined with deeper more precious thoughts layered and peppered with questions and conclusions that may make a difference when I reach Canada, or may not. What I do know is cars move way faster than they need to, so does life.
I seriously love this post. Walking in the quiet of the mountains offers such amazing time for reflection and introspection of various sorts.
Nicely done. I especially like your last line.
