This is the rough route. Right now I’m shooting for around 4 hours of drive time a day so I can take in the journey and not just the destination.
I normally don’t like sites of this type because of their clickbait-y links. But this one definitely struck a chord.
If you’ve read my blog archives you’ve probably come across some posts about my own dealings with depression. It sucks and it’s something I still deal with on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis. I’m still not taking meds, not because I don’t believe in them but because through talk therapy I’ve developed tools to cope with depression. Some days are better than others. When I catch it early it’s a lot easier to get out of that mindset than if I miss it and have to crawl out of it after several days.
Came across some really cool music about a week ago. The group is called Wardruna and they’re a Norwegian music group founded by Einar Kvitrafn Selvik and their song lyrics are in Old Norse. They also make most of the traditional instruments they play and use various natural sounds like fire, water, thunder, etc. Some of my favorites so far.
