The trip back from Canada was epic. Long. With a great short stop for a massage in Salt Lake, then a long drive home. Almost home. Until the car broke down in the middle night. And a huge rain storm came in. I ended up leaving my car for repair in Phoenix for repair, only to find out it needed a new engine. $2500....so I decided to research buying a used "green" vehicle.
In the meantime, someone broke into my car at the garage, and stole everything. All my adventure racing gear, climbing gear, slingshot bike, and a bunch of other stuff. So, now I have half the stuff I used too. Liberating I guess.
I have no running car, a missing van, not much stuff (still one bike!), and have been sleeping courtesy of kind friends for the past week. But I just found a new place to live, and have been doing a great bit of yoga and acrobatics with my partner Emily, and the rest of the crew.
Keeps me sane and centered. Life is full of surprises...
I guess the challenges make the successes so much nicer.
One final question I have been thinking about lately, especially as I turned 33.
Will I ever feel like a grown up?
