I've got tundra on the brain... Yeah, I want to be all alone in a frozen dusty bowl of ash near the Arctic Circle. I don't want this forever... just long enough to find strength in my new path. I want to scream at the top of my lungs and have the wind blow away all that worrisome sound. I'm going to disappear for a little while... so I can better stand my ground.
Time to take off into nature and hike like a maniac through the beautiful wilderness of the United States of AMERICA! From what I've read, it will be a completely different experience compared with the PCT. This hike is going to kick my butt and teach me some pretty special lessons. I'm in need of change and am up for the challenge!
I just dusted off papa's old atlas and got some books in the mail. I'm in full prep mode and couldn't be more excited for these next 1,200 miles. Wish me luck because I'm going to need it!
So happy to be back! - Bloody Mary
