Where To Next?
Over the last month, I've started to obsess over what the next year may hold. Snow is on the horizon, the gear collection is growing, and ambition is through the roof. I am a fairly big believer in always pushing past preconceived boundaries while planning trips. This last year, I was proud to spontaneously hike around a fairly remote peruvian peak in the rainy season. Wet? Yes. Slightly scary? Also definitely yes. Worth it? No question at all.
The next 12 months, though, are set to be a different story. In what ways is yet to be determined. I'm hoping the people in this community may have insight. Given we are all united around trails, HMG, gear and adventure, I have a hunch this is the right place to ask my main question:
What adventure should I go on?
Everything from the Fjords in New Zealand to the salt plains of eastern Peru are on the table. The idea is simple, what grand idea for an adventure can you come up with? Yes, I'm asking for myself because I'm desperate and having a hard time feeling creative, but I also see this as a chance to dig into people's unique experiences, allowing all of us to learn about special opportunities out there!
Right now I'm probably one of many itching to nab the new Headwall 55, which of course means that ski adventures, climbing adventures, or any other snowy mountain escapades are on the table! Nothing is off the table. All I know is that at some point, I'd like to question why I'm standing in this hypothetical wild, remote place, with my only assurance being the excitement I have for being there.
