With this trip coming up sooner and sooner, every day has started to feel like a Friday – an extended Friday as a prelude to a very extended weekend…

I was able to hit one day of the Banff Outdoor Film Festival when it came through town this weekend. It’s an amazing collection of unbelievably crazy people  doing unbelievably crazy things in unbelievably crazy places. I wish my mother had seen some of these films; I think she’d be a little less worried about my PCT hiking plans. I’m not skiing over cliffs with a paraglide chute – I’m just going for a really long walk.

A line from one of the shorts, 35, stuck with me, so I’ll leave it here:

“Dreams aren’t worth much if you leave in the drawer marked ‘someday’. ”
