Yay a new post!

I struggle a lot with the fast / light vs. enjoying the mountains at a slower pace. I feel a little lazy when I opt for longer camping and splitting up the mileage, but love getting to slow my life's pace down. I long to go faster then feel guilty for being rushed in such a beautiful place :P I guess I need to just switch it up...

I always feel just a little wimpy with my awesome shoes, ultralight pack and non cast iron cookware... Those original mountain men were tough! (I think I'll stick with my awesome gear)


It really is such an on-going debate. Not sure there is a right answer. I sure enjoy my time in the mountains when I take less -- both for the simplicity and for the light weight factor!

But a good meal cooked in cast iron over a wood fire... mmmmmm.
