Here is how I’m keeping from pulling my hair out.
I started (really) hiking about a year ago. And I have now completed 25 different hikes in the area and logged over 150 miles.
The second half of our trip was to be spent in Cancun. The only thing on our to-do list was Chichen Itza. Other than that, the goal was to relax on the beach with a drink in hand.
When Laura and I decided to head to Mexico, we opted to split our time and head to the small town of Tulum for the first half of the trip.
We were supposed to be going on a full day hike that included sunshine, the lake, a big group of friends and a few beers. But of course, plans change and people get busy and I get injured. Stupid ankle.
When I told my friends I wanted to do an Olympic Peninsula day trip, they quickly agreed. What they didn’t realize was that they were going to get a 5am Saturday morning wakeup call for it. Good thing they love me.
As I am nearing the halfway point from when I started this, I figure it is probably a good time to check-in with “The Plan”.
