Despite the fact that it is finally cooling off enough here in Northern Arizona to actually hike without dying, I’m having to take a small hiatus for a few weeks maybe a month. It’s for a good reason. For the first time in almost a year, we are putting down permanent roots and the first time in four years we are living by ourselves. It’s a bit of a long story and it has to do with my grandmother having Alzheimer’s and my dad opening his own business, but Richard and I are officially renting a place in the Prescott area. We loved camp and the experiences were amazing, but we couldn’t have our dog with us and with my dad opening his business and need help, well family comes first.
Setting down some more permanent roots has helped us gain some stability that I’m hoping will allow for more backpacking 🙂 and definitely will help us prepare for the move overseas that we are still looking forward to and are finally gaining ground on. It also means that I have to unpack a ton of boxes, buy furniture and set up an entire house, so it may be a few weeks before I can get to posting again!
