The Debate

I have debated back and forth with myself about keeping an online journal for this endeavor. One side of my brain argues that I will appreciate having the information to look back on somewhere in the future. That seems so far away. My friends and family want me to keep in touch and let them know how things are going. It's a way for us to stay connected. I like that idea and that they care. The negative side argues that I've never been able to keep up with a journal and why should this be any different? I won't feel like recording anything at the end of the day because I'll be so tired. That will add pressure to my trip. As the days pass and my start date gets closer I feel that pressure mounting. Oh, and if, I don't keep up with it I'll disappoint people or they will begin to worry about me. And then there is always the incessant nagging feeling of, what if what I write is not good enough? Okay so deep breath and here goes...I'll start recording my thoughts today. And so I've done. This will be my first practice of just taking one step at a time and NOT overdoing it.

Hiking with my Spirit Dogs...The Pacific Crest Trail is described by the PCTA as "a wild and scenic pathway from Mexico to Canada." This is my attempt to document my steps along the trail. Thanks for joining me.
