With 50 days remaining before I embark on my adventure. I feel myself getting nostalgic about every moment I have left, from time with my nephew to hanging out with friends. As it gets closer to the day I leave, I have realized one important thing; I have explained the trip and what its meant to accomplish but I don't often explain what this trip truly means to me.
This trip is my Experiment, my Adventure, my Vision Quest.
This trip is my Experiment because I have no idea what will happen. I have planned as much as I could in terms of my route and what gear to bring with me but at the end of the day what will happen is up to chance. "Where's Harold?", is my opportunity to put everything I have learned, and everything I am to the test. This test has no specific questions and there are no right or wrong answers.
All it requires is that you enter with an open mind and open heart, that you are prepared to face both safety and danger all in the pursuit of Adventure in order to create stories and connect with people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
"Where's Harold?", to it's very core is a Vision Quest, a rite of passage that I have imposed on myself in order to see what I am made of. I have no clue how this trip will change me but as I begin this trip as a young man, I hope to finish this trip having grown in both mind and body.
