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.
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.
