2019 NOBO

I haven't gone through my photos from trail. I haven't read through the handful of notes. When I get ready to I always tell myself that "I will start tomorrow" and then I never do. The fact of the matter is that relieving the trail is both amazing and sad. I feel happiness reliving the memories and then a deep sadness missing the trail.



The trail was something that I wanted to do for a long time. Now that it's over I feel as lost and confused as ever. Being on the trail was perfect. It was the first time in a long time where I knew I was in the right time doing what I was supposed to be doing. And now, I have no idea what I am supposed to be doing and what direction my life is supposed to be headed.


But I am ready to relive the trail. It helps that there is a world wide pandemic and we have to relive the past instead of adventuring into the future. Hopefully, it's a little more than the average trail journal and I'll do the trail just a little bit of justice sharing my emotional journey.
