The Un-Private Pregnancy

Finding comfort during pregnancy is essential. Especially as you get bigger and achy-er and start audibly grunting when you bend over. At the risk of making this post too much about consumerism, I think it’s important to highlight some items that I am in love with and that have eased the transition for this growing […]

We are already almost at the end of March (hello, spring!) and I have yet to post my 1% goals for the month. I have also failed to say how the goals for February went. All you need to know is that everything went by the way-side, but I did submit and successfully defend my […]

Not the best two weeks for work-outs. Forewarning: I only had two work-outs for the entirety of this time. No excuses. I’ve just been wiped out. Then we had a big travel week for a job interview and I was sick and, well, continued to be wiped out. I’m still sick and will be doing […]

The first thing I thought about when I read the story about the lone jogger in Colorado being attacked by a mountain lion was The Lone Ranger! You can jog or hike alone and be called a “ranger” ranging almost any place in America, but is hiking it alone a good idea in this day and age? Even The Lone Ranger radio adventure program that I listened to as a boy on the battery-radio wasn’t completely alone as the Masked Man had his partner Tonto. A compatible partner is very helpful in emergencies, or as a co-protector, or in a break-down of bones, or in case of a mountain lion attack! Companionship can be considered, too, but meditation and writing are personal things best achieved without distraction. Remember, though, that the lion attacking the jogger was a young one of “30-40 pounds!” You would have difficulty stepping on the neck of a full-grown, 150-pound, extremely agile and strong adult! I would be a goner if a big one clamped down on me, but overall, they are shy, which was a good thing when I chased a big, tail-flapping adult out by Glen Pond one time! I just wanted a photo. Note the man said that baby tenaciously hung on to his wrist! It’s almost an automatic clinch hold, like an eagle that once impaled my upper leg during first aid to a wing. The veterinarian had to cut me loose. Don’t mess with an alligator, either! As an only child on a farm, I hiked and hunted alone most of the time. My folks rather set me loose to explore our 100-acre farm and the surrounding friendly neighbor’s land. I’d always tell where I was going, though, and Dad was a good tracker. “He who travels alone travels the fastest and is the most silent.” And perhaps the most lonely. I am reminded that John Muir hiked alone from Wisconsin to Florida in 1867, sometimes sleeping in a graveyard for privacy. He did have a hiking companion, though, when he initially hiked from San Francisco to Yosemite in 1868, but most of his treks in the Sierra Mountains, where he would describe building a big campfire at night, and once getting stuck on a steep mountainside, were alone. In Alaska, he hiked a glacier with only a little dog, Stickeen, that had adopted him. He did have some memorable moments outdoors with Theodore Roosevelt and many other celebrities in between solitary saunters. John Muir never had a broken bone! He said: “This good and tough mountain-climbing flesh is not my final home, and someday I’ll creep out of it, and fly free, and grow!” I have wandered alone on many trails in California, but I really appreciated my family on an all-day hike above Sonora Pass one time long ago. When we topped the ridge of our gemstone destination, there was a particular lonesome moment in looking out over a dark canyon and to Yosemite peaks in the distance. You have to admire the trail-breaking Mountain Men in braving the isolation and being self-reliant … often alone. I think of Jim Bridger discovering Yellowstone alone, and seeing “petrified birds singing petrified songs!” John Coulter also trapped the Yellowstone, plus escaping the Blackfeet and traveling alone, shoeless and naked, for 200 miles to a fort. They all had their stories. Presently, exploring with nature hike groups is the way to go, sharing discoveries and finding safety in numbers. “The trail to follow is remote for detachment, narrow for chosen company, winding for leisure, lonely for contemplation, and leads not merely north and south, but upward to the body, mind and soul of man.” — Harold Allen [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]
