Planning for the thru hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (along side planning for all my other adventures) has been revitalizing. It’s given my mind a new path to wander, my heart a new possibilities to dream of, and a new community to learn from.
Most of my existing gear will work extremely well with my almost ultra light gear plans (excluding the camera). My fitness plans for this year will keep my body where it needs to be to take on the trip. I also have a databook in hand to start working out my plan for daily millage and resupply. With all of that, I have my head fairly wrapped around what still needs to be done… for the most part.
What I’m lacking is a purpose other than just taking on one of my life goals. I really would like to tie my journey back into a cause greater than myself. My friends and family know that my greatest passion lies in inclusion through the open flow of knowledge with the emphasis on bringing women into sport/adventure. Basically, I’m searching for a way to start a symbiotic relationship with an organization that will help me grow as a person and photographer while I help bring awareness and knowledge to their cause.
I need to put a bit more research into this concept before I start contacting organizations, but recommendations are definitely welcome at this point!!
Till next time,
This Little Engineer
