Opportunity Of A Lifetime

For years, ever since my college days in fact, I have been working, working, working. Like a madman I would put in 70, 80, 90 up to 110 hours a week in pursuit of a career. With my social life and running thrown in, that didn't leave much time for reflection.

That time is now.

This summer I will be traveling the Western U.S. to not only see this wonderful country but to also spend some time on myself. Trails have been my way of escape the past few years and they shall be an important part of this summer. (At this point, I need to thank my lady who is making this sabbatical possible for me and who has been so very supportive).

First up, Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks. I'll spend the week there and then head over to Pacifica to meet up with some GUTS people for a little trail race on Saturday.

I didn't take this one, but you bet that I'll have some good pictures for my next few posts

Hi Dave,
So many places, so little time! Let me know if you have any desire to travel a little further. You should come see Banff National Park! If so, just drop me a note and the spare room is yours!
