I had some free time to get Outdoors. I will be doing a large section of the Olympic National Park Coast next month for my Birthday (read more below). So I wanted to get a few little trips to condition my feet for Coastal Traveling, since its not my specialty. There is a lot to deal with and isn't a 'Vacation' like every city human thinks. There are a lot of variable, especially in the Winter. You must deal with Tides, Rain Storms, Winds, High Surf Advisories, Coastal Flooding, More Mud and Higher River Fords. All the while trying to plan a Route in all of that is kind of an extra life's pleasure. The benefit is low Backpacker numbers and Bugs. Which to me adds to more of a Primitive Wilderness Feel.
