One Huge Trip

This trip is like nothing I’ve ever read, heard, experienced, or even dreamed about. I’m 62 days and 9 stats into the trip. I have 303 days and 41 states to go. Something about this week in Boise made me sit back and look at the big picture, which might be dangerous. All I can do is sit back and think, “Whoa, a full year of doing this is more than I could have dreamed up or ever prepared for.”
It’s not that I underestimate the trip. But wow I’m getting excited and it’s sinking in more of how big this is. Perusing the photos from only a month ago and it just seems like so long and there are hundreds of photos and stories since then.
Nine states complete. Nine has never been such a huge number to me when I sit back and look what I’ve done in that. As for 41, that number is gigantic. And there is an even bigger number, 365 days in a year, the approximate time of this trip. Now when you have “The Best Day Ever”, 365 is suddenly a number that I can’t even fathom. This is when I start to wonder if I truly am living my life to the fullest. But that’s much too big of a question.
Live hard. Sleep well. Enjoy.

The Best Day Ever is the best to date - but tomorrow or day 265 may bring an even better day! That's the beauty of the HIT - the potential!
