Farm Girl Goes Wild

December 23, 2019

Daniel and I have taken a mountain trip together every year since 2011.  We backpacked on our first trips.  Then we went out from a basecamp with only the clothes we wore.  Then we made our own clothes from wool and buckskin.  


So far, we've survived.  In fact, the adventures have helped me live more.  I remember building a shelter from fir boughs at high elevation.  Come to think of it, I really DO want to stay alive.  Without choosing to make a shelter, I probably wouldn't make it through the night.


The farm is a comfortable, regenerative place.  I love the running water, the washing machine, the hoses and books.  I love them all the more because I have chosen time away from these comforts.


2019 was the first year we haven't taken a trip together.  The fall seemed too full of responsibilities, the farmily too new to take over while we left.  I miss our mountain story.  We may have to take a trip in the spring.  What do you think?
