Change of Winds

PRESENTED ON FEB 23, 2017
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 29

Wake up at dawn, emerge from tent, brew a pot of tea, make breakfast, consult maps and plan, pack up camp, find water, forage for wild edibles, cycle all day ....

DEEP BREATH

Find more water, make camp before dark, wash clothes ... make dinner, make another pot of tea, tie food up in tree, sleep or maybe just pass out.  Repeat until reach destination. 

If that didn't exhaust you just reading it you won't believe the trials and rhythm David Quiring put himself through for an experience.
