I wish I'd known that going solo would be so amazing. Yes, my pack is heavier because I have no-one to share the weight. And there are times when I've backed off a mountain because I had no support if I got in trouble. But the solitude, the time for contemplation, the self-reliance, and the tiny joy of meeting someone after days alone is beautiful. My voice has occasionally surprised me when I speak again. But then, I sometimes talk to myself, too.😃
one or more gifts or other benefits from the co-op.
