I went for a walk at lunchtime. Just a wander up to town, an excuse to get out of the office and get my head straight. Life's transient. We're only here for a short time and then we're gone. If I needed a poke with a sharp stick then today was it. I'm more determined than ever to get out more and and actually experience life.
So more wild camping, longer walks and more effort to get to the less accessible hills that I only ever read about.
I bought up a copy of TGO for the first time in months. Nice issue with a lot of interesting articles on gear. I was a bit taken aback that it's been 6 years since the "traditional versus lightweight" article. Time really does fly.
Went online and picked up a few bits, to finish off my "kitchen", from backpackinglight.com. Knowing Bob, they'll be here tomorrow along with a wee bag of jelly babies.
Already thinking ahead to the first wildcamp in an age, preferrably before the midgies wake up.
The house is warm, the dogs are fed and walked and the future Mrs D is singing upstairs :o)
Life can be good.
