I was kayaking in the most beautiful place ever – the gulf islands off the British Columbia coast – when I realized that I was spending more time writing my blog post about the trip in my head than I was just looking around. Now when I’m in the backcountry or on the water the only tech I take is a SPOT emergency beacon. As Ram Das said: “be here now.” This road has appeared to you for a reason, you might find it valuable to follow it.
