Just this past summer, I had chosen to spend a month vacationing inside of the mountains near my home. I had visited often in the past, but I had never been out there for a good length of time, and I really felt the need to challenge myself. I actually had the time of my life. I gained an entirely new appreciation for camping, hiking, fishing, and cooking over a fire. I never thought I would be able to do all of these things, but I found that I really loved all of it. I managed pretty well during my vacation in the mountains, but I did struggle from time to time with not having an air conditioner. It made me realize how dependent I have been on my heating and cooling system at my house, and there were days when I really missed being able to adjust the thermostat and relax within the pleasant cool air. I found there were other ways to cool down. I would go for a quick dip in the lake or nap in my nice hammock within the shade. It wasn’t quite as nice as using the air conditioner and lying down on the couch, but it definitely was a great experience. Nature is so peaceful, and I got some of the best sleep I’ve had in my life out there. When the month ended, I went back to my job feeling recharged and prepared to go. Everybody had questions about my awesome trip. Some people were shocked that I was able to survive for so long, but I think anybody could do it if they are willing to put themselves to the test. I would like to do this sort of thing again later on. I will probably choose a new spot, but I would prefer to stay again for at least a month if not longer.
