I wanted to thank everyone who came to hear my talk last weekend at the Jtree library. I think I had around 25 people there; a mix of family, friends, coworkers, new faces, and even 2 current thru-hikers! I had a blast once again, reliving my journey through my presentation. I am so honored to share my story with so many interested folks. I really can’t believe it. I had no idea last year when I was hiking that a year later, I would be telling my story to crowds of people. It is so much fun! I really enjoy the new confidence it has given me 🙂
I would LOVE to spend some quality time this summer, going over my blog posts and putting together a story for a book someday. A few folks have suggested to me that I should write a book (maybe because the book “WILD” by Cheryl Strayed has become so popular so fast…..?) SO, here is a question for you all. If I wrote a book about my PCT adventure, what would YOU want to read about? What would the angle be? What is the most interesting to you? What would make YOU buy a copy? I would love to have your open and honest feedback. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to turn what I did into a satisfying creative project for me.
Again, for those of you that have friends interested in my talks, I will be giving 2 more over the summer (so far) in Las Vegas at the REI stores: July 22nd and July 23rd at 630 pm. They are free, and you can register for the lecture at their individual websites.
Now, onto a summer of fun and adventures in home nesting 😉
