Your Friendly Hise Hikers Tuesday Tip… Be Prepared.
We’ve been getting our gear ready for an upcoming 75-mile backpacking trip. As we pack, we ask ourselves questions like, “Will I need this?” and “Will it serve more than one purpose?” and “How much does this weigh?”
We have picked up some new habits on a few trips this year (like making soup in camp and having some hot tea before bed) that we’re excited about including on this trip. We’ve also got some new recipes that we’ve tested out at home and are looking forward to on the trail.
And that got me to thinking about HOW EXCITED I am about hiking this stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail… AND how some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet… and Anne Frank’s quote is 100% spot-on for me: “What a wonderful thought is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t even happened yet.”
And that got me thinking… what if I approach every day like that? What a gift!
