Travel has a funny affect on people. Especially to those of us that get stuck in routine. It forces us to alter our patterns and in the absence of those routines, we're given the opportunity to be ourselves. Or a better version for that matter. These past two trips out to Utah have been eye opening, rejuvenating, and depressing all at the same time. Eye opening because you realize how much is out there. How much the world has to offer, and it's just BEGGING to be explored. Rejuvenating because Heather and I met some of the best folks on this earth and made lasting friendships. And depressing because once you've had "it", you kind of get addicted to it. Sometimes I wonder how folks re-enter every day life after hiking the Appalachian Trail... how do you get amped up about catching the latest season of Grey's Anatomy when you just spent the last 6 months connecting with nature??? Of course, I didn't hike the Appalachian Trail, I only had a couple trail rides out in Utah, but it was enough. Enough to get me hooked and wanting more. I know it's a little late for New Year's resolutions, but here's to adventure, good friends, and more stuff that makes us think (and doesn't do the thinking for us). Cheers.
