Relentless Writing Mind

“The stillness of the dark night seeps deep into my bones. Laying upon this hard rooftop, I gaze longingly into the black abyss. My body is quiet, but my mind is forever racing. Thoughts come and go like shooting stars grazing the envelope of this silent night. I’m tired. I’m ready to succumb to the dream state that eagerly awaits me at the edge of my eyelids. But hours have passed and my musings still soar through the sky at galactic speeds. It’s both a blessing and a curse to be chained so heavily to my relentless writing mind. Every part of my body seeks rest, but there is no rest when my ruminations get their creative itch. The need to outsource my ideas onto paper grows stronger as my fingertips freely bleed ink. My solace tonight is knowing that once I’ve written down everything that impedes sleep, my mind will sweetly drift into the playground of my subconscious and frolic with the beauty of my imagination. Until then, my ideas continue to etch themselves through both time and space as they travel to their destination upon lined paper laced with thousands of familiar words.”

Swim Circumnavigation of Lake Tahoe

In the next few months (July/August) I’m going to be swimming a circumnavigation of Lake Tahoe… self supported! In total it’ll be between 70-75 miles. I’m planning on swimming roughly 10 miles a day, although I’m hoping the swim will take under 7 days. No fins or a wetsuit will be worn. Like my backpacking endeavors this will be self-supported. I will tow my food, camera, camping gear, phone, wallet, etc in a dry bag behind me with a leash attached to my body. To my knowledge, the only other person to solo-swim/self-supported of the perimeter of Lake Tahoe is Justin Lichter back in 2007. Prep for the queen of open water swimming… the English Channel

Great Himalaya Trail Announcement

I suppose this is the official “unofficial” beginning of my next big adventure… I bring you the Great Himalayan Trail. When complete this will be the longest and highest trail in the WORLD. I’ll be thru-hiking this beauty in a little over a year from now. Roughly 1,200 miles long, this route will take me between 2 and 3 months to complete (read: 75 days).   I plan to leave mid-March to get accustomed to the Nepali way of life and culture, then start my thru-hike the beginning of April. This trail has a VERY small handful of people who have completed the High Route in a single season – to my knowledge it’s less than 10. The planning involved with a trek of this magnitude is extensive to say the least. With the help and collaboration of past thru-hikers and the GHT’s creator Robin Boustead – I’m in the right hands.

 The GHT (high-route) has been my dream trail for years now and I can’t fend off her enchanting call any longer. I hope to leave you with the notion that no idea, no matter how colossal, is too big to take on. Cheers to the very beginning of a TON of planning Photo Credit: Remy Vógue Levin who thru-hiked the GHT last year

Boundless Opportunities

“As my head hits the hard compacted dirt I’ve gratefully chosen to call my bed for the evening I wonder if it’ll ever subside. I vividly dream of places I’ve never been with people I have yet to meet. The boundless opportunities to share love linger on my skin like a silken cocoon. Wrapped in visions of unknown yet familiar territories I close my wandering eyes and drift away from the shackles of consciousness as I free my spirit and dance through the realms of a universe beckoning to be explored. There’s one thing I know for certain – my human body knows the secrets of the soul and my cells will continue to dream and discover until my bones disintegrate and the dust of my past blankets every corner of this beautiful world.”

Late Night Ramblings

“I was forged with a burning desire to experience as much as I allowed myself. No longer was the question of fathomability present. For I had felt the impossible and the illusion of limits had been dissolved. My mind had shifted and I knew that I possessed everything there ever was. The choice was mine, yet strangely it had already been solidified centuries before. The knowledge of “how far can I take this” had evolved into “how deep can I go” and because of that pristine truth I was forever open to the unimaginable.”
