I’m Baaaaaaack

The last time I posted on this blog, I was wrapping up a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, and trying to figure out what I was going to do with the rest of my life. I named this blog ‘Walking From The Law’, so I figured, at the very least, I was going to leave the practice of law behind and head off for greener professional pastures. Alas…

This did not happen.

Even though I ended up back at my desk despite what I originally had in mind, things have gone pretty well for me. The job has turned out to be pretty darn good…I work with great people, have flexibility in my hours and the clients I take, make a decent wage, have benefits and don’t have to worry about billable hours. I enjoy going to work, and it doesn’t get much better than that as a lawyer.

In addition to that, the bf and I have done some pretty fun things. First, we adopted a heck of a dog. He’s a heeler with a heart of gold and the energy of a hundred tasmanian devils, and we love him. The cat is coming around.

Meet Boudreaux. Bodie for short.

We took some vacation time.

Paddling around Florida.
Indulging in the Big Easy.
Meeting my brother’s aircraft carrier in San Diego.
Rafting with Donkey and Polliwog!
Checking out the outer edge of the United States, aka the Olympic Peninsula.

We bought an RV from an awesome dude named Big Al in Arizona.

We call her the Navi.

I joined my friend Jillian’s band, Giants In The Trees, and we’ve have some pretty epic adventures.

Opening for Foo Fighters at Safeco Field in Seattle.
Playing LiveWire on National Public Radio in Portland, Oregon
On tour in the PNW
Recording videos for YouTube. Check ’em out!

All in all, I’ve had an amazing few years. And now I’m itching to push back from the desk and head out into the wilderness again, this time on the Arizona Trail. Thanks to the flexibility of everyone I work with, and the endless patience of my boyfriend and bandmates, I will fly out this Sunday to begin another adventure. I hope you follow along!

  2. It is wonderful to see you posting. The Kiwanis loved your presentation on the PCT.

  3. Have a wonderful trip. I’ll miss you and most importantly…I await your safe arrival home!
    Oh, and of course looking forward to following along here in blog-world!

  4. I am excited for you! I love you and your blog. I am not familiar with the Arizona Trail, I will have to check it out.

    I was raised in Arizona and climbed just about every mountain in the state, but never heard about a trail.

    You go girl, have fun!

  5. We are so looking forward to following your trip. If you need a place to take a shower and wash clothes in Tucson, we have just the friend for you to pop in on. Let me know. We love AZ and have gone there most springs for many years, to bird. The border has gotten unfortunately crowded with border patrol people, but most have been nice. We spent a week in Brown Canyon alone, below Babaquivari peak once a few years and it was heaven. Mostly we stay near Patagonia, where one of our fav birding routes crosses the AZ trail. Have a wonderful trip!

    1. Thank you, Carol! I was hoping to see a lot of hummingbirds in Patagonia, but the rain sent them elsewhere.
