AWOL

What would it mean  to go truly AWOL to you?
 
I've just finished reading
 
AWOL on the Appalachian Trail
 
By David Miller.
 
 
 
 
This is the journal of a man who quits his job and,
 
with the persmission and encouragement of his wife and kids,
 
hikes over 2,000 miles of terrain through 14 states,
 
from northern Georgia to central Maine.
 
I can say, I'm inspired.
 
I think I would love to hike the AT.
 
It may be dangerous, rainy, cold and hot,
 
but from reading this book I have learned that it has been accompished by ages six to eighty.
 
It can be done.
 
Who would take 5 months of their life to up and leave their job to accomplish this?
 
Turns out thousands.

I have considered this and still consider it, although my choice has been in France, the Compostela pilgrimage trail. I am going to do it...one day.

Would have no interest in doing this....

away from my family, children, friends...

I have enough interesting people in my life aready without looking for more ......


Sounds exhausting....

No, I would not care to do this; however, my husband would. I'm not a 'nature' gal at all...don't like dirt, bugs, snakes, being wet or cold. I will leave those elements to people who truly enjoy them.

Quite an adventure. I admire that he accomplished this but I don't think I could do it. I couldn't be away from home for that long!
