This is a new section on the blog! For a big, big endeavour. And also a big, big maybe. Due to the current events aka Covid, it is absolutely uncertain if I will be even allowed to travel and do what I’ve been planning for months now. But hope is (second) last to die and what’s the point giving up on a dream now because it might not come true when the outcome is beyond your control? Every day, I allow myself a solid fifteen minutes to worry about it, same with all the other potential and real catastrophes going on. The rest of the time, I pretend it’s gonna happen because what else can I do? So as we stand, let’s pretend! Fake it till you make it has always been my motto.
In August 2020, I will hike the John-Muir-Trail.
213 miles, and an elevation change of 47,000 feet, approximately.
Three weeks. All by myself.
And here, I will keep you updated, write about my experiences, and let you virtually come along on my journey. Not in a live feed, because I’ll be off the grid, but there will be a lot about me preparing and to provide you some background information, followed by a post-trail shortened diary (short: PTSD. Oh, wait, that’s already taken.).
The mountains are calling and I must go. – John Muir
So keep looking here for one of the greatest solo adventures I’ve ever tackled!
