"If a man walk in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and entertaining citizen." H. D. Thoreau
I took a break from this blog. In fact, I took a break from most of my activities (home building, general responsibilities other than a couple days of work). I had to let a couple blisters heal. I had to let my body rest a bit. I've had so much rushing about, building, working some extra shifts, hiking long distances and other stressors that I just needed a good long rest.
Not that I wasn't outside doing things: I did. I pretty much live outside. And I read plenty. But now it is time to start getting ready for the Appalachian Trail experience; the next adventure.
So it is time for all Loafers to head back onto the trail.
Here's a link to my hiking companion for the next go around.
