Does The Journey Count?

Does The Journey Count?


At the end of last week we had 2 full days of snow.  I then went to hike to the exit point for a BASE jump, cutting a new trail.  I had my mini crampons on but I found myself, at times, chest deep in the snow.  It made for slightly slow going.

Alastair Macartney asks if the journey counts?

In BASE jumping, sometimes the journey is more important than the jump itself.  While I love working in a dynamic team, sometimes time on your own, in isolation, in a beautiful place, with nothing else around you is priceless.

For the first time in a long, long time I was able to be completely present.  I was mindful, enjoying battling through the snow.  Enjoying my solo journey.

My wingsuit BASE jump was great.  I enjoyed that a lot too.  But the journey to achieve it was what really counted.
