Hiking is my ultimate passion. I easily love about everything about it! Getting to blend with nature-the sounds, the smells, the beautiful scenery. I don’t always get the option to get out on the trails as it requires a very long weekend. I’m on the clock 9-5 with a “sometimes Saturday” requirement. I’m sure you can imagine that when my schedule opens up, I’m heading off to go hiking!
My schedule just happened to open up in the month of July. I knew it would be scorching hot, hiking through the mountains this time of year. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity, so I packed my hiking plus camping gear plus took off with a huge smile. If you’re a distance hiker, you definitely know that there are points in the journey that can get pretty rough! The heat starts to wear down your body plus even though it’s a passion of mine-finding my zone plus pushing through the discomfort is just a regular part of the experience. It’s strange that I found my zone by daydreaming about laying down in my cool room, with my comfortable sheets. I could hear the hum of my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C appliance gently kicking on from my room window. I could feel the breeze from the HVAC vent as the cool air would start to flow over my face. The way I love to fall asleep with such a frosty comfortable feeling plus sleep so soundly when the room is air conditioned at just the right level… A lot of hikers will find their zone by daydreaming about different types of food! My Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C appliance helped me to discover my hiking zen. I am honestly grateful for my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C appliance being huge part of my journey. I will admit that I did stray off sometimes with thoughts of chocolate dipped in chocolate.
