I always got short term goals and long term ideas to challenge myself. There is always a higher mountain, a further line to ride and a tougher way to accomplish something.
Expeditions is my favorite ways to go further than I could imagine myself doing. You can take your time, escape civilization and see true nature without human interference. The distance is not exactly what excited, but the remoteness of the location is what makes me wanna do it.
My goal this fall is to push a 3 day hiking trip through Jumbo Pass to explore the region for skiing.
My big million dollar idea is to hike Iqaluit to Pond Inlet on Baffin Island. Ive seen the coast of Baffin, visited both places through work, but the thought of travelling through the craziest mountain range without assistance really turns me on. The biggest hurdle is securing enough money to pull it off. A flight to Iqaluit is 2000$ and returning back from Pond Inlet is another 3500$. Supply drops are a few thousands more.
Heh, dreams can sometimes only be dreams...
