It hit me a day or so ago that I have no (well, few) obligations right now. There are no disasters happening currently. I am way too wound up over a trip I have completely planned for near the end of next month. When I started pondering starting to pack for that trip 6 weeks out, I immediately decided that I need a shorter trip to keep me occupied.
In a discussion with friends earlier Lake Havasu came up, and I decided that was a good place to head for a night. Take the kayak, camp or sleep in the car. It is the stuff I’ve been saying I’m looking forward to when I have time. Well, right now I’ve got a lot of time.
I then looked at the weather. What happened to our sunny 70-80 degree days? And nights in the 30’s??? I will have the kayak with me, but I’m not sure it will get in the water. I have 2 down sleeping bags, and a down under quilt for the hammock if I decide to use the hammock and stand. I have thousands of dollars of camping gear that I have not used in maybe 10 years.
All of that gear is up in Payson in my storage shed. I’m heading up there today to get it. Soon. After I finish a second cup of coffee and have some breakfast, and load up some stuff to put into storage, and… This is why my body hurts when I move. I’m putting off getting out and doing things. I need to just get up off my redacted and get going. If not now, when? I’m running out of time.
