Adventure Challenge – Day 22: Unknown Trail

I had to fly to Chicago today to start training for a new contract. It doesn’t leave much time for finding an adventure. I was a little worried when I got to the airport and a woman zeroed in on me and decided to unload all of her problems on me. As a result, I was the last one on the plane. I was just praying to the travel gods that I would not be sat next to her. Being the last one on the plane, they made me check my bag which I was going to have to retrieve from baggage claim. I never check bags. When I got to my seat, someone was in it and was quite pissy with me when I told her she was in my seat. Apparently the seat meant much more to her than it did me, so I sat across the aisle in her seat. I ended up being sat by a real cool artist who I became friend with on the trip.

When I got to Chicago it was the typical shuffling around, meetings, and being introduced to everyone. I attended the required dinner. When i got back to my hotel I noticed what looked like a trail just across the parking lot. I asked the receptionist about it and she didn’t know. I decided to go exploring. It was a trail. It looks like maybe it was once part of a golf course. It has a paved trail and the entire thing is grown up around it. It is actually a nice little escape from the city around it. It was just at a mile long and full of flowers and wildlife (guessing from the animal tracks and poo on the trail). It made for a nice little adventure at sunset.

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
