For the past couple weeks, I have been working hard on a course revision project to get the bulk of the work out of the way in June. Then I can shift my focus to trip preparations in July, which will be way more fun. I feel like I'm finally in a good place and can take the evening off to relax and do some personal reading. It's nice to be away from my desk for an evening!

I will take time off here and there to complete some legs of my drive across the country, but I am trying to do most of the driving on the weekends and evenings.

I am hoping the routine of work will help me stay focused on an alternate place of "play" - taking advantage of every opportunity I can to do, see, climb, and soar.
There are some places where I will only have a night or two, so I'll count on you, my friends, to motivate me to see every part of the country that I can as I travel forth!
