A lot going on out here.
I don’t want to travel anymore. My wanderlust for the rest of the world has been overwhelmed by this state. There is SO MUCH here that a lifetime of free time wouldn’t even make a dent. Throw in photography projects, films, education, exploration, adventure, hiking, climbing, fishing, riding, etc. and I have the rest of my years cut out for me. I’ve been cycling a bit, but not that hardcore. My daily 20-miler mostly, but might attempt ski basin again soon. A few hikes but nothing major. And one day of fishing but dreaming of more. I’m working two jobs now, so my life is hectic. I was asked yesterday what are the biggest challenges of my life at the moment and my answer was two fold. “Lyme and being rushed.” I’ve based myself out of New Mexico for the past two months and have been flying out of ABQ for my work needs, which has been FANTASTIC. First, I love ABQ and I love the ABQ airport. It’s so easy. I also like that most of the time I’m leaving early AM, so I get up at 4:15AM and drive south while the sun is just coming up. The view and feel is why I’m alive. My wife flies out every other week or so, or I fly back, or we meet somewhere in between. She is my life force, so gotta keep that energy flowing. And I’m a total stud and she needs me, but you all knew that. It’s OBVIOUS.
I hope this post finds you feeling equally alive and equally motivated.
PS: I can’t remember if I posted these images before, and I’m too lazy to check. PSS: I LOVE My Fuji and I LOVE my Atlas packs and I LOVE my Hoka One One’s and I LOVE my Tacoma. And no I did not drink that beer.
