This time, I'm going to drive down the night before the hike, so as to get on the trail at an early hour and not kick myself when it's already noon before boot hits trail.
Hm. It strikes me as an odd practice to pre-journal a hike. Perhaps I'm painting myself into a corner, so I'm accountable to you all to actually go on the hike. Thanks.
I'm ready for the weekend, I'm ready for the end of this project, I'm ready for a week of vacation time that I've got coming, I'm ready for a return to a mood where I'm not looking forward to escaping work with this intensity. The risk of not having a life, I guess.
