Some Rain, a Wedding, Mindfulness, and Mushrooms

No. The title isn’t a Beatles lyric. Nor did this journey involve psychotropic fungi!

When I awoke on the rainy morning of Tour Day, the last thing I thought I’d do is crash a wedding party in the mountains. I also didn’t imagine I’d score some yummy, farm-fresh cremini mushrooms for a killer Sunday lunch, or engage in deep existential self-reflection 😛

As usual, prepare yourself for a tale of my flagellant sufferings that I relish and recount with debacucherous zeal.

Riding the Coyote, Awooo-Awooooo!

Hungry like a wolf, I decided to take my next stroll along the Coyote Creek Trail.

Another solo overnighter, this excursion put me about 50 miles south at Coyote Lake-Harvey Bear Ranch County Park in Gilroy, CA.

Bitchslapped with knowledge from my last trek, I was raring to apply my newfound wisdom to get a fully completed tour under my belt.

Failure, the Greatest Teacher (My 1st Bike Tour)

I’d been itching for my next adventure. For weeks, I vicariously devoured other people’s travel accounts. I was tired of sifting through the all-engulfing vortexes of guides, blogs, and other media on the interwebs. So I set a date for my first bike tour.

I wasn’t really sure where to go, or how far I could last. But that didn’t matter. Like most new hobbies, I threw myself in headfirst, justifying this course of action on the “figure it out along the way” approach. After all, it’s all about the journey and not the destination, right?

Well… Surprise, surprise. I got in way over my head, and didn’t even make it half way!

Here’s my story and what I learned 🙂
