3. Be in the moment. Sometimes I ended up on cow paths and not trails. While on the slick rock I was sure to look for cairns to mark the trail. Look for clues along the way. Also, keep your eyes above for bad weather that might be moving in.
The bumpy slick rock-also on the map. And dark rain clouds moving in.
4. Carry necessities before going out. What constituted a necessity? Water, rain coat, first aid kit, and snacks. If you are on a bike-tube, air, and tools. A multi tool like a leatherman is always good as well.
No-I didn’t drink a beer or eat sushi out on the trail. However, that Leatherman has come everywhere with me since I was 16.
5. Have fun and enjoy the ride. Yesterday’s adventure was liberating. After a day of working hard and being on my game, I got to lose myself on new trails in a new area and explore. I can’t wait to go back now that I actually know the trails.
Looking slick with my sweet helmet hair.Any great adventure stories? Do you enjoy exploring new places on your own? How good is your sense of direction?
