On January 1st, 2017 I headed out to the wilderness in the Pacific Northwest and began my journey to complete 52 hikes in a year. As of this writing, I’m almost there! What I didn’t know that I would learn on this journey was that I was capable of anything I decided I wanted to do. As always, safety first, but I have accomplished hikes that only a year ago I thought were beyond my capabilities. What did I take from that? The Sky is the limit! If I want to do something, anything, I just research, prepare, educate if needed, and then as Nike says: Just do it! Sometimes even when I didn’t want to do something, like get dressed, drive a hundred miles, and lug a pack on my back I did it anyway. And guess what? Never once did I regret my decision to “Just Do It”! So for 2018 I have a new goal: I will hike higher and farther than I ever thought possible! Come back and see where 2018 takes me, or better yet, join me!
