I've said it before, but...

I just want to travel around and have adventures. I'm getting so restless. I have this road atlas (the National Geographic "Adventure Addition", which means it has inserts on a lot of national parks and descriptions of great places to hike, bike, climb, paddle, everything) and I spend so much time looking at the maps and planning imaginary trips that I would want to take if I had the time and freedom (and money). I want to go everywhere. I want to live in the woods and not in a hotel. I want to climb mountains and hike through deserts and paddle on white water and scale cliffs and eat cacti and fight alligators. How am I ever going to survive as an engineer?

I really want to organize some kind of adventure between when I get done with work (August 13th) and when school starts (after Labor Day). I am supposed to be back for cross country on the 22nd, but...our captains have already kind of said if you have cool adventures planned that's ok since we don't even know who our coach is yet and no one has officially given us a "you must be here on this day" mandate.

If I ever get married I'm taking my honeymoon in Glacier National Park. But we can also swing down to the Grand Tetons, too. Or maybe I want to trek through Australia? Who cares that your sex drive drops when you are hiking 15 miles a day or that sex attracts grizzly bears...I'm sure I could overcome those obsticles and have the sexiest wilderness honeymoon ever.

Well since I'm leaving for Australia on the 15th you can come along with me and we can get married right after we finish spelunking and kayaking with dolphins. I suppose Tom can come along too and we can have sort of strange 3 way Maori marriage ritual. Then again you're still not 28 so I guess its not an option...

What the hell are you trying to get me into? I stopped spelunking in junior high. Disgusting habit.
