Throughout the summer I am going to attempt something a bit different from the normal postings here at Simple Marriage Project. Every so often I am going to pose a question or discussion topic to extract some thoughts, wisdom and tips from readers.
So to get this party started, here’s what happened to me last week.
One evening I was reading an article in Backpacker magazine about two people who hiked the Continental Divide Trail from New Mexico to Canada and then back. It took them almost 200 straight days on the trail to complete the task.
As I was reading, my wife came in a said to me, â€œWhy donâ€™t you take a month and go on an adventure? You’d love it. Why don’t you go and do it?â€
So what would you do if you were in my shoes? If given a month to live an adventure, what would you do?
I’m in the midst of planning for later this summer and I’d love to hear from you. Where would you go? Who would you go with? What would you do?
A note: please donâ€™t feel constrained by the usual format of â€œblogger writes article, commenters address authorâ€. Youâ€™re encouraged to engage with other commenters, have discussions with other readers and go a little off-topic if you like.
The comment threads in these posts should generate interesting discussion but my main hope is that theyâ€™ll provide a forum for readers to chat, ask questions, share tips and get to know each other. Iâ€™ll be participating in the discussions, too.
So to pose the question once more, what would you do during a month long adventure? Stretch your thinking and post a response in the comments section below. I look forward to the discussion as well as some ideas I may use during my own adventure.
