Going against mother nature is like betting against the house in Vegas: you may get lucky once or twice, but in the long run you're going to lose. We decided to go with mother nature today, rather than take our chances with the rain.
Today the plan was to set off in the afternoon after eating lunch, but sometimes plans change. We sat inside eating lunch, watching the rain, and decided after deliberation that maybe a day off wouldn't be so bad, especially considering we heard the weather is supposed to improve tomorrow.
Lately on the trail I think about what's next. This encompasses a number of things including work, future adventures, and just life in general. Sometimes it makes me happy, but it also reminds me that this fun, amazing adventure will soon be over. At this point the only thing I can do is enjoy the here and now, and not worry about the rest of it until the time comes.
