About TheWalkinDude

I use The Walkin' Dude as my title because I walk everywhere, and traveling by these means makes me feel closer to my inner self, my soul and spirit, so to speak. Inspiration catches me on the peak of my dumb, klutzy moments and gives me further reasons to pursue and blaze my trail.


Interests

Swimming, camping, yoyoing, playing the saxophone, reading, writing, and walking.

Occupation

Student, camp counselor (pioneering, wilderness survival, and archeology), sax musician, and yoyoer


Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
