It was a misty morning when we got up. My whole body hurt when I get up and start moving around. I think that my body may never submit to the daily strenuous exercise that I subject it to. It's hard to get the gears moving but eventually the muscles loosen up. We have 9 … Continue reading WHW – Day 7 & 8 (Tyndrum to Inveroran to Glencoe Mtn. Resort)
WHW – Day 5 & 6 (Inverarnan to Crianlarich to Tyndrum)
Day 5 - Inverarnan to Crianlarich The word of the day is RAINWATER. Thankfully, the three longest days are now behind us. We now have two short days of six miles each day between Inverarnan, Crianlarich, and Tyndrum. It's possible to do that in one day but during the planning phase, it seemed reasonable that … Continue reading WHW – Day 5 & 6 (Inverarnan to Crianlarich to Tyndrum)
WHW – Day 4 (Rowardennan to Inverarnan)
After our "rest day", in which Esther and I hiked 8 miles with 3,000feet of elevation gain and descent, it was time to hit the trail again - hiking from Rowardennan to Inverarnan.

From hiking the whole trail this time, I think I got about 3/4ths of the way up the mountain when rain, wind, … Continue reading WHW Day 3 – Rest Day & Ben Lomond
Off to Scotland & WHW Day 1 & 2
Vacation: a 95 mile hike (high potential for rain)

I'm a senior project coordination manager and I love my job! Loving my job makes it pretty easy to … Continue reading Vacation: a 95 mile hike (high potential for rain)
#Adulting v2 (Change is the constant and loneliness is possible)
Several times now I've had a bunch of things that come to mind that I want to write about and update you on... and also I want to continue using this site to share experiences since I'm still paying for it! If I don't pay, all my content on here will go away and that … Continue reading #Adulting v2 (Change is the constant and loneliness is possible)
So much to be thankful for!!
Where Am I Going??
Where am I going? What am I doing?? What is my purpose? Short answer: I wish I knew and I'm still trying to find it out for sure (whatever sure means to me these days -- I think it means a solid working concept towards which I can focus my energy and resources). The new … Continue reading Where Am I Going??
