About this blog

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. Henry David Thoreau

He also said that an early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.....well in April 2015 I plan to set off on around 5 months worth of early morning walks, and as is true with life in general I'm sure that after getting up at 5am, hefting - no, not hefting, gently settling my (very light) pack on my back, and setting off for the day any subsequent blessings will be presented on a continuum ranging from the magnificently beautiful and poignant gift to the more painful and shocking, yet somehow....interestingly wrapped. I will be challenged physically and emorionally, and my mind will attempt to bully me into thinking I can't hike 2,660 miles from Mexico to Canada, but I know I can, as long as I just keep hiking.
