When John Lennon said that life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans, I think he was looking into the future and speaking directly to me, specifically this past summer. Of course, in my case, I made so many plans for the summer that once it arrived it was all I could do to run around and keep all the plans, let alone reflect on them or write about them in some coherent fashion, even when they did involve hiking and the wilderness.
And then, once summer was over, Her Side learned about another soon-to-manifest work-life upheaval (a good one, don’t worry) that will likely make it even more difficult to post regularly. Thus, I’m going to jump off the regular posting schedule for a while — I’ll no longer be on hiatus, and will try to post at least once a week if not more, but I can’t promise the days.
To make it easier to follow without obsessively checking the site (which I know you’ve been doing faithfully even while I’ve been a flake), here’s what you can do:
- You can subscribe to the email list, on the right side of the page;
- You can click on the little RSS feed button; or
- You can follow Her Side, “hermountain” on Twitter.
Or you can do all three. I’m just sayin’.
In the meantime, I do have a number of articles in the works, including:
- a review of a hike in Vermont that I did while dragging my non-hiking best friend and her two kids along with me (first time hiking for the 5 year old!)
- a review of an incredible Colorado resort spa (complete with hiking)
- a review of a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park that I have now managed to do twice somehow without realizing it until the hike began the second time
- reviews of some products, including sunscreen, bug repellant, lip balm, and soy jerky
- finishing up the Rules and the Good Stuff
- some slightly politicized discussions of paying for rescues in National Parks and people’s tendency to rely on technology to overestimate their abilities and safety
- and a bunch of other stuff.
See, I have been thinking about you, I swear.
