Wow!! It quit snowing for the afternoon and I saw a few patches of blue sky briefly. It almost seemed like spring for the 15 minutes while I dug out some pack saddles and gear that I needed for teaching some upcoming pack classes. It felt good to be outside without a coat and multiple layers on. Then Sunday I taught my first pack class of the year (only 20 to go) to a bunch of 4-H kids and their parents. I started prepping for my next pack class that’s coming up the end of this week. Talked with a couple of Sportsman Expos about packing demos. Had a meeting with the Forest Service about some upcoming projects they are needing pack support on. Got invited on some rides with friends this spring. Toss in a couple of fishing trips I want to pack into with the wife and kids. And my calendar is getting pretty full. And yes it is only January. There is just so much I want to do how do I fit it all in? There just isn’t enough hours in a day, a week or a year. But I’m going to try. I’ll push it to the limits and grab as much life as I can. I’ve already shifted to my summer hours, up at 4am and run till I can’t stay awake any longer. My kids asked me the other day, “You left me a message on Facebook at 3:30 in the morning….was that really you?? and why were you up then??”
I can’t be the only one packing my calendar past load limits….I asked everyone stopping by Trailhead Supply for coffee the last week what do you do different than I’m doing? The common answer is sorry I’m already booked! Time is only the first half of the problem. The almost the bigger issue is how do you fund your full calendar, because it’s a pay to play world!!
