Sat Nam Yogis!
Welcome back to the next episode and Day 5 in our #YogicJourneyandWildGooseAdventure.
After a morning of repackage, loading the camelback with Yogi Tea and a long goodbye to Grandpa we were back on the road.
Still being on California time has its ups and downs. Downside: morning is too damn early on EST, the sun comes up too soon and well, we don’t like mornings, but I don’t guess that’s a time zone issue as much as it is that we are just night owls. So the upside is well, we can ride later into the night as our bodies tend to ignore the fact the sun has disappeared and we keep going like the energizer bunny.
Not having any concrete plans can make for a great adventure as well as adding moments of frustration. While giving both the freedom to get up and go when you feel the need it adds a bit of uncertainty as to when you’re going to reach your destination. Bring us to today’s lesson on this adventure. Life isn’t about the destination it’s about the journey and what you experience on the way.
We had a grand plan of making 250 to 350 miles a day and that is great as a goal but sometimes we go slower than planned simply because we are enjoying the view. Then there is the problem of hitting the wall and being done for the day. Tonight was one of those nights when the only hotel in town was as good as it got. Luckily, Amy checked out the room before we lugged all the gear to that end of the hotel, because the room was far from ready and they switched our room across the building. We were so tired we pulled out the shower flops and did sadhana on cleanest spot in the room, the bed.
Come back tomorrow to learning about the trials and tribulations of our yogic diet on the road.
May Truth, Light and Love Guide Our Path
