8 Things I Learned From the Foothills Trail

1. You have to get your own guidance. Others can confirm but you can’t rely exclusively on their ability to get it right.

2. Don’t confuse others with overconfidence in your guidance. You might mess up their journey.

3. You can be extremely passionate and still be extremely lost.

4. Most all foods taste better when you’re backpacking. This is not necessarily true for coffee.

5. Often “easy” is a subjective term.

6. Sometimes the trail is most vaguely marked nearest to the most amazing destination.

7. It’s usually darkest just before the…greasy cheeseburgers, hot bath and clean sheets.

8. Nothing like an 8″ Gerber stapped to your hip to get the respect you deserve!
