Will,

This sounds like an ideal getaway to have some time by yourself in nature. I really applaud this. I have been thinking of doing something very similar. I am not much of a camper or survivalist. But, nature has been calling me lately. I agree that it would be very healing to do this. I'm going to use this as inspiration to plan something similar for myself.

Will,

The hike sounds like a tremendous statement of being where you wish to be in healing. Strong, resilient, and self-reliant with confidence in what you want and need. Proud of you man.

And the Appalachian Trail... for so many years I have wanted to hike a part of that. Not the 2000 miles you did when younger, and probably could no longer do the 110 miles you plan to do, but just to say I did a portion of it while I can still walk. And to hang out with the trees and the hills and the meadows. You may have given me a goal for the next upcoming birthday year. Thanks, dude!

Enjoy your "walkabout" and be safe.

I sooo much can relate. When younger I hiked most of the trail. I remember it with much fondness. I compare being determined to complete the hike to what I have done these last few years. I set a goal to put to rest several of the traumas in my life. Not let them have power over me or control me. Just like climbing the knife edge in Maine I had to do it and did. We all have a right to be better and enjoy life more. Gods speed to you and be safe.

Suwanee-Will:
Based on your profile and interesting, forthright writing style, I hope you will stay on this web site, you are a tremendous asset to it. I know for someone like myself it is very helpful to see successful men who have dealt with this subject and been able to move on. I liked the combination of coolness and depth that you brought to this site, you seem to be intelligent and a role model type for all of us.
Hope you continue to do well and enjoy your trip hiking.
If you ever do decide to post an item on what things got you through the tough times for you, and what things worked for you, I know it would be very helpful to someone like me to read and learn from.
Good luck to you.
Greg.

Hi Will. Good luck out there man! I hope you have a wonderful time on your adventure and I hope it helps to bring you whatever healing, inner-peace and solace you are seeking. Having said that, you certainly are a more rugged man than I am, that's for sure. My idea of "roughing it" is when the power goes out and I have to sit in my apartment all night with no TV, internet, video games or AC. I can't wait to hear how this walkabout goes for you. Take care. Be safe. Peace,

Ken

@Ken - sorry about the Falcons. I think of you every time I see there score. I know how you are feeling - I'm an Eagles fan :-(

Will - I'm glad to hear that this is NOT a "Dear John" message. I can't take the rejection ;-) I feel guilty trying to guilt trip you into not leaving the site. See I need you to help me with the whole guilt thing... ;-)

I hope you have a great time! I am working with a friend to go do an outdoor adventure and while not alone I'm sure it will be a very healing trip for me.

Congratulations Suwanee i'm happy for you.

Integrating the events of our life and not running from them is the only way, Like Churchill said, "If you're going through hell,keep going."

In a way to break this curse of side effects?Aches? Pains?... we are forced to own up to a bigger personal journey and pilgrimage for ourselves and the people around us.
Truly only love can save us. Mountain range extension love, i am talking about the one you follow blindly the one you never question, I hope that some of the mountain stay's within you this weekend, so may we be ever all strong and resilient like the mountain, which was born of the earth only to try and touch the sky.
