Day 5 and 6

Day 5 and 6 were a bummer so I put them in one blogpost so you’ll only have to read about my kinda bad mood just once. I promise I’ll be back to being positive in my next post 😉

  1. Awesome journal, I love the little drawings. Even with you frowning face you still look strong, so I say adapt and overcome, I’m still looking forward to seeing your posting even on your bike journey. Lmao on the pro bars! Been there and done that.

  2. You are going to love the Grand Canyon and Utah’s National Parks! Now that’s a silver lining! This should be a great time of year, too. Take your time…enjoy the miles that spin by and each destination. So much to take in. You’ll see more in a few months than most of us “natives” see in a lifetime! (What’s wrong with that picture?) Remember…adaptability is one of the keys to happiness. Life never plays out according to the script we write. There’s treasure hidden in the landscape and I know you’ll find it!

  3. Stay strong Cat!!! It’s not the journey you have imagined for so long, but it will still be a great one! The PCT is not going anywhere, she’ll still be hear waiting for you later. When you get to Arches go to Milt’s for ice cream and the Moab Brewery for beer.

  4. Ah Cat that sucks so much I’m so sorry! You have every right to feel the way you do. Don’t you worry about what anyone else thinks though because this is YOUR journey! You have to take care of you and you will be happy you did in the end. You will see amazing things, meet amazing people and will be smiling again. =)

  5. Puh, liebe Helen. Bitte sei so geduldig und liebevoll mit dir wie du es mit deinen Wildnisschülern bist. Ich glaube du kennst deine Worte gut- gönn sie nun dir- ich finde sie sehr heilsam und machtvoll 😉 Dann nun gute Fahrt und Grüße an deinen Liebsten

  6. Sending all good thoughts your way — and big hugs from me and Molly, too! You’re entitled to feel sad, angry, pissed off, etc., but I hope you can wholeheartedly embrace your new plan and live in the moment of your (revised) journey. You’ll have experiences as glorious as your yucca and hummingbird moment!

  7. Hey Helen, fühle mit dir. Sei nicht enttäuscht. Es wird vielleicht nicht so, wie du geplant hast. Aber es wird DEIN Weg. Und er wird sicher noch viele Geschenke für dich bereithalten – ob nun zu Fuß oder per Rad. Behalte deinen Blick für die schönen Seiten (warmes essen z.B. – das wärmt auch ein bisschen das Gemüt). Es ist wohl eine große Kunst auch solche Sch…Tage anzunehmen. Ein schwacher Trost:Auch hier hat es den ganzen Tag nur geregnet und tut es noch immer. Die Weinberge haben es gebraucht…

  8. Ik begrijp je frustraties en je tranen, zusje! Maar kop op he, uiteindelijk gingen je voeten je brengen door een heel mooi stuk van onze aarde. Nu ga je op een andere manier door al dat moois. Ik ben zeker dat je dankbaarheid zal vinden als je die prachtige natuurparken extra zal zien. Ik kan daar (voorlopig) alleen van dromen en velen samen met mij. En ten slotte nog dit: niemand zal ontgoocheld in je zijn. de enige die voorlopig ontgoocheld in je is, ben jezelf, maar uiteindelijk zal je ook dit een plaats kunnen geven. Je dromen op het laatste moment nog moeten veranderen, is hard, maar uiteindelijk zal je er sterker uitkomen! Ik kijk verder uit naar je volgende oprechte dagboekfragmenten.
