I can’t wait, according to the tracking our goodies arrive from Amazon tomorrow! Pooch will soon have her own saddlebag backpack for our hikes! Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be nice (it’s a chilly 31* currently) and I’m chomping at the bit to get pupster out and on the trails with her diva pink backpack and a training clicker.
So now I get to figure out what to pack for pooch, which of course means I’ve got to go through my own pack as well. I love to be prepared and I love to have everything organized and at the ready. Yes, I’m the guy with a first aid kit in every room, a can of spam in the trunk, rehydration salts in the glove box. Every so often while hiking I come across people in need of first aid. I’ve once wrapped a gal’s knee after she fell down some stone stairs at the will rogers shrine. For some reason every time I hike I come across someone hah.
So we wait impatiently for our backpack and other goodies and have big weekend plans to hit the trails! She and I both need the exercise and some good walking meditation is in order. I’ve been refreshing myself with some SMART recovery tools and just finished re-working a tool called the lifestyle balance pie, meant to identify areas of my life that need improvement. This took me several days of self examination and a good amount of self acceptance and a little bit of time on the trails would do me good.
It’s been a long while since I’ve hit the trails in a serious fashion and I definitely need the exercise. It’ll be nice to get the camera out and get some good photo’s, photos of my pooch and the woods and the turning leaves. Nice thing about Colorado is our fall season, the crisp air and scenery, the colors, the breeze, I love it here. Pup loves it here too 🙂 I’m glad. So today we will hike, tomorrow we will backpack, and Sunday… well, maybe we’ll go for a drive! Pupster does love her car rides.
