Article Summary:

All it took was one long distance hike through the High Sierras to change the course of my life forever.  I went from climbing the corporate ladder, to climbing through the Sierras, to traveling the world indefinitely.  My preconceived ideas about what life was about were challenged in a very big way.

Every story has a beginning, and mine was on the shores of Lake Tahoe.

As I sat digging my toes into the sandy beaches, I turned to my friend and exclaimed, "There's more out there that I want to experience.  I want to sail around the world, I want to through-hike the AT.  There's just more out there for me to do."

My friend, a little perplexed, stared at me with wonder.  He had known me my entire life and knew that this wasn't that path that I was on.
