The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.-Thornton Wilder
The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Explored a different part of Annadel today on the mountain bike via the South Burma Trail to Buick Meadow. This was a nice 6.5 mile ride from home.
While there I met a gentleman hiking. He had hiked in from his home outside of the park. He figured he would hike around 14 miles for the day, taking 5 hours to do so not counting an hour lunch stop. This would be longer in mileage and time than I would do on the bicycle for the day. He was 65 years old.
