Happy Trails!

So, imagine spending the last few months minimizing your life. Deciding what to keep and what to sell off. Everything you’ve decided to keep must fit in 5×10 storage.

Next thing will be to leave your job and move out of your apartment. And for the next 6 months you and your significant other will be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

My brother-in-law and his wife are doing just that. Today is the first day of their long hike. They are starting their journey at the Mexican border and plan to hike the trail north into Canada. They estimate it will take approximately 6 months. Thankfully, they will be journaling about their journey here.

I’m so excited for them. I never had the opportunity in life to do something this adventurous. So, I’m going to live vicariously through the stories they post for the next 6 months.

I’m also proud of them. The amount of planning and preparation to embark on such trip is astounding. And then having the courage to leave safe and secure jobs, I know I wouldn’t be able to do that. Everything you need to survive must fit in your hiking pack.

Proud of you guys.
