How have I been home for 2 1/2 weeks already? Good news is that my list of things to do is getting shorter even though I continue to add to it.

I’ve been playing the hermit since getting home, probably a direct result of spending most of the last 6 months alone…I find it’s sometimes hard to make small talk, hard to sum up my 160 days in a few bite-sized snippets, hard to go right back to being the extroverted well-socialized and excitable hiker. I know that side of me will emerge again, probably once I have more of a direction with what I’m going to be doing now that I’m off the trail.

As for work I have a few irons in the fire, some exciting opportunities that I’ll be happy to share once confirmed, so really, this time can be devoted to relaxing, easing back into the fast-paced whirlwind of off-trail life, and just being. Except that’s hard to do…I find myself gravitating towards the more existential questions of life…and perhaps that’s because when I’m busy I never really give myself time to meditate on the deeper subjects.

Ok, that probably sounds a little doom and gloom, but that, folks, is post-trail readjustment.

A few of you have asked about my gear list…I’ve put together a page here...I need to get my hands on a scale to weigh all the miscellaneous things that don’t have listed weights on the product website. I never weighed my gear, so it’s kind of funny to be doing so now after the fact.

Time to keep on keeping on…
