Took a road trip with my buddy in training, Junior. Junior is a rescued Lab mix ( I think) with serious social anxiety.. .kinda like his owner. We headed to Asheville to hike and enjoy the day, what the hell was I thinking?? I was fooled by the 52' here, arrived on NC and it was 38', windy and snowing!! We stopped at Chimney Rock and Junior went swimming in the river, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! See its a Lab thing. Visited cool shops in Black Mountain, talked with shop keeps allowing myself to become every shops worst nightmare by putting a plug in for my work when ever possible, although Juniors blue eyes softened the blow. Anyhow, the trip cleared my head, maybe the wind blew out the dead ideas and allowed room for new ones, we may never know. Came home totally inspired, I worked late that night and all day yesterday. Today will be the same, I hope this continues at least until Spring so I can actually go hiking!
