I love that saying from the movie WILD!  
It goes like this "I didn't know where I was going until I got there"!

For NOW, as 2014 draws to a close, I have finalized "OUT & ABOUT in 2014".  Since I started tracking in 2010, the distance I cover each year horizontally and vertically, I feel proud to report that this was a stellar year horizontally for me reaching a whopping total of 828 kilometers of distance covered.  Vertically was mid pack at 32.3 kilometers of elevation gain.  My trips to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Palm Springs where I hiked  for numerous days straight, helped elevate those numbers. 

At year's end, I like to pick an outstanding, for me for one reason or another, photo for each month to share with you.  This time around, that has evolved into a slide show.  If you have an additional spare 4 minutes and 2 seconds + 15 seconds, click on the 2014 4:02 of HAPPY link below (it will take 15 seconds to wind up then begin).    

NEXT, I have "OUT & ABOUT in 2015" designed.  I'm looking forward to this new year with even more enthusiasm.  I already have one big exciting trip booked and there is hope for two more on top of that.  Over the past number of years, I have given up making New Year's Resolutions preferring to stick with always trying to make the most of each day, live life large, be thankful & appreciative for the life I have and to "remember to breathe".

I hope your new year brings you 
plenty of peace
heaps of happiness
loads of laughs



  1. Awesome stats! By remarkable coincidence we've also clocked 828 km this year, which is by far a record for us. Our 2015 goal is 1000 km, although that's a bit lofty; then again, that's what makes it a goal!

    1. Are you serious, you guys did 828 kms also? Too funny! From what you both have accomplished, 1000 km for 2015 is a great goal. I look forward to seeing where 2015 takes you and will continue to read your write-ups and admire your photos! Thank you for dropping by and leaving your comment.


I'm always curious to know what your comment might be!
