Proceed On
“Proceed On”… I think that Lewis and Clark wrote that in their journal as their traveled across this big country. I recently heard that quote from Jack Rich, a local horse outfitter for the Bob Marshall Wilderness.

I have been thinking a lot about Lewis and Clark and how it relates to us. Our past 3 days have been excruciatingly long and grueling. August 14, we got into camp around midnight. I was cold, tired and hungry. But I knew that when I go to the Support Team camp, there was a hot meal and tent waiting for me. Lewis and Clark didn’t have that luxury. Their vision was of the bigger picture, to find out what was in this unknown territory, where as I have a day to day picture of getting to point A to point B.

Wednesday afternoon when Jack dropped up off on the side of a mountain after riding a horse for 15 miles, we hiked over two mountain ridges to stay on public land. By the time we got to the second peak, it was way past sunset and was in complete darkness. We thought we could hike to the Pass by ourselves, but it was so hard to navigate anything. We were all getting cold, but we were prepared. We had lights, food and warm clothing. Our Support Team had to hike up to the ridge to lead us in the correct path. It was a long night. No one complained, if anything we came together as team. I had no fears that we not make it home. We all mentally “proceeded on”.

The following day, we woke up and met a new outfitter to take us on a 20 mile horse back trip on the Continental Divide Trail. We got into camp at 10pm. It’s a running joke that we won’t make it to camp before the sun sets. Two long days back to back. I am sure that Lewis and Clark and long day after long day. But they “proceeded on”.

This is hard. But everyday I wake up and I am so thankful that I get to do this. I will proceed on.
