Ramblings of a Tired Mind

The time of year I look most forward to has arrived once again. No I’m not talking about the return of Los Cariñositos (The Spanish version of carebears) although they do have a new person doing the voice much less interesting than in the old days but let me know what you think..

Aside: In university I often watched the intro to of Los Cariñositos before going to school. I must say there are few better ways of starting a day.

What I am referring to is back country camping. This is one of the few things besides seeing the lovely Nikki that I really look forward to with all my soul. This sounds ridiculously silly but let’s look into the background of how this came to be.

A few years ago I was going out with a girl, much less wonderful than Nikki in oh so many ways. We had gone out for about 3 years and we usually saw each other at least once a day and when we didn’t we spoke on the phone endless

Note: I dislike speaking on the phone for more than 37.23 minutes a day to a single person.

Now at this time of year several years ago I realized something important, mainly that I didn’t want to marry this girl … ever. In retrospect I don’t think she really did anything wrong just little things like not realize how great I was which was why it was so hard to break up with her. After this I needed to disappear and think about things and my good friend Ruben came up with back country camping. (He’s a good fellow, although rather confused these days)

I won’t bother boring you with the details or more likely boring me since I already know them and am probably the only person that will read a post this long at a later date.

The great thing that I love about it is that I get to push myself to my limits. It makes you really realize how few things you need to be happy and gives you a true appreciation for everything. Also it teaches you self reliance, it’s just you and your coterie and the wilderness so you better be confident in yourself and your abilities. Another great thing is it really gives you time to think and reflect about everything with no distractions.

Note: It was at this time that I decided to never ever be with someone who I was not totally and utterly happy with. Also to never be with someone who does not totally appreciate me and does not treat me nicely (too bad it took so long to realize this)

Note: I have now found such a lady.

One of my favourite things about this yearly trip is I get to do it with my two best friends, as far as I’m concerned that’s pretty much all I need in terms of friends these days. Don’t get me wrong I have many people who I could have fun with but things wouldn’t be the same without Ruben and Nikki.

Note: I miss Nikki so much these days. I’m really looking forward to seeing her for 6 consecutive days. This is the best part of this years trip.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that even though some things may not be perfect like it may rain, there may be bugs, it could be cold I look forward to it because it lets me do the things that matter. Spent time with people I care about, think, push myself and use my wits.

You're so sweet. :)
You only need a few things to be happy, but I need showers. I hate not having showers out in the woods. *fury*

PS, what is with the Carebears? You're strange, hun.

Welcome back, MT. Nice to see you again! I am jealous of your upcoming camping trip. Are you going to Killarney again?

i agree with hanging out with people you love and relaxing but the woods wouldn't me my choice. Grumpy would love it but I need a little more comfort - I'll settle for a cabin in the woods that and I have to bring the doggies.

I love camping for the very same reasons. Although last time it poured soo much we got a motel for one night. Yeah, just call me Grizzly Adams.

Good to have you back. And I think you learned your relationship lesson plenty early. Some people never get that... or need repeated reminders. Enjoy your camping!

Aleck's ivories gleamed in http://wowyesaf.info/rnergiapro+wroc%C5%82w.html the darkness as he disappeared.. You see, said Buller, it won't do to sail straight across, because the current would carry us down and land us http://startso11.info/notowania+eski.html below that spot.. If two were quarrelling about http://startso11.info/natchos.html a marble or a ball, I had only to go behind a tree where I was concealed and look at them leisurely.. Suddenly a thought struck http://startso11.info/piel%C4%99gnacja+park%C3%B3w+%C5%82%C3%B3d%C5%BA.html him.. ' 'Oh, let http://startso11.info/portal+elblag.html it wait,' says he.. We leave all sinful things to the http://startso11.info/praca+lublin.html vain and foolish.. He was a powerful man, with a good-humored face, and, in spite of his http://startso11.info/Kursy+Ekg+dla+piel%C4%99gniarek+w+Sopocie.html unfelicitous nickname of The Bone-Breaker, had a kindly, simple, but somewhat emotional nature.. Even when children's dreams are complicated and polished, their comprehension as a realization of desire http://startso11.info/Biuro+podatkowe+Podatnik+Pozna%C5%84.html is fairly evident.. I regard it, therefore, as my right to http://startso11.info/osiedle+zielonki.html establish this new view by a proper nomenclature.. Ellsworth counted out some http://startso11.info/www.venezia.pl.html bills.. I zay, said he, you mos pe dronk as de pig, vor zit dare and not zee me zit ere; and I zay, doo, you mos pe pigger vool as de goose, vor to dispelief vat iz print in http://startso11.info/Kuchnie+gazowe+do+zabudowy.html de print.. One hundred--going--and fifty--gone! Mr. http://startso11.info/Lublin+sklepy.html. He lightly put aside the compliment with a wave of his white hand. http://storyah44.info/reifeisen+bank+polska.html. Having carefully perused the column of Houses http://startso11.info/white+stone-+bizuteria.html to let, and the column of Dogs lost, and then the columns of Wives and apprentices runaway, I attacked with great resolution the editorial matter, and reading it from beginning to end without understanding a syllable, conceived the possibility of its being Chinese, and so re-read it from the end to the beginning, but with no more satisfactory result.. The psychotherapy http://startso11.info/york+hospital.html of the neuroses is based on this difference.. A second chair offered http://startso11.info/www.Air+Soft+Gun.com.html to the mother that lady, however, declined.. It is like fireworks, http://startso11.info/kolektory+s%C5%82oneczne.html which require hours of preparation and only a moment for ignition.. He could feel it, if he could not see http://startso11.info/VINCULUM.html it, and he laughed aloud.. When he http://startso11.info/www.rocky-rlz.blog.onet.pl.html spoke again, it was with the old, subdued tone, and the air of quaint solemnity.. Hotchkiss was not 'fond' in the ordinary acceptance of the word, said the Colonel, with professional http://startso11.info/SKOKI+NARCIARSKIE.html gravity...

Glad to see you back - I had almost given up on you. Almost.

Oh, and I believe the Spanish Care Bears to be essential.

As do I. But venturing into the wild has its merits.
