New Year, New Adventures

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

On The Best Holiday Ever, we had nothing but time.  We enjoyed time to talk, time to think, time to read, time to relax and of course, time to plot future adventures.  And we've plotted many. 

We came up with all sorts of wonderful ideas and naturally, there's a few we decided to make happen this year.

We've been making these adventures happen since Keith quit his Big Boy Job almost two and a half years ago.  It's important to us. Every day, we hear stories from friends and family of people who no longer can do what they want to do because of illness or injury.  We say, Do it Now!  Figure out a way to make it happen, and do it.  Go. Now.  While you can.  While your able.

What's in the cards for this year?  First off, I'm heading to New Zealand for a month.  I'm leaving on January 12th, my 45th birthday!  This is a Leslie trip.  Keith is busy having fun of his own at working and playing in the Caribou Mountains this winter.  I love that his work and his play have become intertwined.

I signed up for an Ultra.  I haven't been doing much racing these past couple years and I really have missed it.  Keith and I did some volunteer duty at the Mount Spokane 50k and I earned myself a race entry into any event.  I signed up for the Gorge Waterfalls 100k - it's a good excuse to make a trip back to the Columbia River Gorge.  The last time I was there, I was Wooooohoo-ing, A LOT.


And lastly, Keith surprised me with an idea that he would like to pursue.  After hearing all of my stories from the Pacific Crest Trail, he wants a taste of his own.  I will be returning to the PCT in early May with my hubby, so we can take a little walk together.  We're planning on hiking all of May and June, taking it day by day and seeing where it gets us. 

After that, we want to be home in July and August, to enjoy our amazing backyard.  There's no place I would rather be in the summer than home in Banff. 

New Year, New Adventures.  We'll see what we can dream up for the fall.
