So long, I’m going solo

For ten years or more I have gone on an annual solo camping trip and it’s time for my 2013 time away. It’s not a deep wilderness, survival of the fittest exercise. It’s not a find myself, soul searching escape the world pilgrimage. I will not be leaving all technology behind. I will be tent camping at a state park, that translates into real bathrooms with showers.

I’ll spend my days reading books, listening to Mariners games on the radio, going jogging, cooking simple camp meals and taking a few day trips including ferry rides. The picture below may give some indication of where I’ll be.

I look forward to the trip. Something about the rhythm. I think I have been at the same park each year and usually in the same site. Somehow the simple rhythm is all I need.
