I’m tired. I should be sleeping. Instead I made a FAQ page! Reach it by clicking the tab up top, or you can click here. If you have a question just put it in the comments section pretty much anywhere, and I’ll add it to the page.
I’m moving to Southern Oregon on Friday! And other exciting things. Post-trail life is still hard. I feel sort of empty inside. I don’t know what used to go there. Endorphins? A sense of urgency? Hunger? I’ve decided that finishing a thru-hike is sort of like quitting an anti-depressant cold turkey. I wish there was some way to taper off. Mood swings city, population me. Happiness shot through with crushing melancholy and an overwhelming sense of loss. It’s getting better though, a little every day. I haven’t cried in like a week! And soon my life will have reliable sunshine in it, and nature, and that will help. And I’ve been running six to ten miles a day! That makes me feel good about myself, and it takes the edge off. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure that there’s no amount of exercise that can replicate thru-hiking. Except maybe I should become a farmer. Should I become a farmer?
And other questions.
