Vancouver Island – Part 1

The fact that I made it to Lopez was amazing. And the whole reason I decided to come to the Northwest.

The plan looked fine on paper, but required multiple connections, no late arrivals and smooth transitions. Just like travel always goes, right?!

Sweat and Dust: Type 2 Fun

"In the outdoor community, it’s said that there are three types of fun. Type 1 is fun to plan, fun in the moment and relatively fun to talk about afterward. Type 2 is fun to plan, a bit of suffering in the process, but worthy of barstool conversation. Type 3 gets a little darker. It doesn't sound like good idea during the planning process; the process is committing, potentially deadly, but the rewards course through the rest of your life."

Walking through

“Somebody ought to tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit every minute of every day. Do it, I say, whatever you want to do, do it now.” — Michael Landon

We reached the end of the land, the bottom of the final portion of final push up to the cross - Cruz de los Mares - and sat down for lunch. It was almost 4:00 in the afternoon, we had been walking since 7:30 that morning, and had already crossed two rivers.

Enough

I have no words….

 

“I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened….We face, therefore, a moral crisis as a country and a people. It cannot be met by repressive police action. It cannot be left to increased demonstrations in the streets. It cannot be quieted by token moves or talk. It is a time to act in the Congress, in your State and local legislative body and, above all, in all of our daily lives. It is not enough to pin the blame on others, to say this a problem of one section of the country or another, or deplete the facts that we face. A great change is at hand, and our task, our obligation, is to make that revolution, that change, peaceful and constructive for all. Those who do nothing are inviting shame, as well as violence. Those who act boldly are recognizing right, as well as reality.”
-John F. Kennedy
