So, last Saturday, an old friend and I went on a little road trip to the Three Ridges Mountain in Virginia. As we drove down Interstate 64, I was sitting in the driver’s seat. But the wheel wasn’t in front of me. I peered up at the mountain as the engine roared through the fog. Marissa and I sang along to Chromatica by Lady Gaga as we chugged along, just after 6AM.
Marissa took this picture (above) of me with my new walking stick!
When I got home, I immediately began the frantic search for hiking boots. Amazon, Zappos, etc. I looked for an hour or two, and had a few options in my cart. I wanted shoes that would support against ankle rolls and keep my feet dry, as I plan to hike increasingly difficult terrain in the coming months/years. Eventually, I saw some that just felt right. Keen. I can’t wait to log miles in these and take them to places I’ve never been before. They’ll be here tomorrow, supposedly. Until my next hike…
