Surviving Adventure Rides

I've always been super impressed by the girls who set their minds on something and go after it. The girls who know the challenges ahead and figures out the unknown along the way. I've always been a planner. When there is something I strongly want to do, I like to secure things in place before I can actually plan and share it. Like this bike tour I'm doing in October. Since my decision, I've had weeks of planning and training to get me to this point of sharing. I think when it comes to making it a point of making an effort to adventure, we gotta go with the mindset of just do it and the rest will follow.

It's About The Journey

When I moved out to the Hudson Valley, I had hoped to achieve something in my life, simplicity. Although buying a house doesn't exactly get rid of the responsibility of a mortgage, it does add a little stability. When you want simplicity, you also need stability. I haven't always been a stable person in the sense of where I live. I have moved to three different places in the last three years and have traveled plenty in between to almost render myself unstable every two months. When I return home from a trip, I find myself within the next week planning a trip somewhere else, often a place where I need to see people, family or friends, and often work comes along with me.
