I get asked this a lot and even typed up a long post here explaining that I have a great life and love where I am, a job and skillset some people would kill for. I have everything I could ask for. Being happy is one thing but I want to be ‘more’ if that makes any sense. It isn’t greed for ‘more’ it is more like wanting more air, I need to breathe. The post was actually really good but I deleted it because I didn’t feel like it was along the tone I want this story — the story of my PCT trip and beyond — to carry.

I don’t want to be looking back, not at the start of moving forward.

While researching on a possible trip down the Mississippi river on a stand up paddleboard (need to spend my time before I am hiking somehow) I ran across this dude and he didn’t answer the ‘why’ question directly but did so indirectly.  Check him out and listen to what he is saying.

    I agree entirely; I am giving up a great job and great life in lieu of the unknown, Tess and I have dogs which are now at a buddy’s ranch (and we miss dearly). But we both just need to breathe….

    Good luck out there

    Teal and Tess
