Come 2015, I’m stepping off the edge of the mountain, hoping for a set of wings to appear and a good wind to carry me. I quit my job, moved out of my apartment, and left my friends and family in the paradise that is Montana to search for new opportunities, a sea change, and the chance to follow my dreams. And first and foremost, to figure out what those dreams really are.
My loose plan is to walk around the mountains of New Zealand for a few months, and then ski those mountains for another few months. Maybe a side trip to a South Pacific island. Yes, it’s another one of those cliche journeys of self discovery – but hey, it’s my journey this time, which means I get to make up my own story.
