I’m leaving tomorrow for another hike. The hike will last somewhere between a few days and a month. It depends on whether I feel like hiking the entire trail. I’ll give more details about my hike in a later post.
Usually, when I go hiking or am otherwise traveling I just let the blogging slide. This time around, since I am taking my car and should have access to the internet and a reasonable amount of free time everyday I plan to continue blogging. I’m hoping that I will be able to do more writing than I normally do. Now that I’m no longer working I have plenty of time to write, but I’m very good at finding other things to do besides write. Even though I like writing I often end up doing everything else first and leave writing last. I’m going to try to change that habit while I’m on this hike. I know there are a lot of traveling bloggers so I know it is possible to travel and blog at the same time. I like to think that I could one day be a traveling blogger. If I can’t write regularly when I’m away from home though then being a traveling blogger isn’t going to happen.
There shouldn’t be a need to update this post. If you see new posts coming out three times a week or so then you will know that I’m meeting my goal of blogging while traveling. If it seems like I have just disappeared from the blog then you will know I haven’t managed to blog while traveling.

I always feel conflicted when I am on vacation. I don’t want to let things slide, but I am on vacation. Some day I will figure out the right balance between nothing and the usual effort.
It is difficult to get the balance right. There is always something that needs to be done on the blog or at least should be done.
Where are your travels taking you?
I’m not going too far. I’m just hiking on the Katy Trail here in Missouri.
I find blogging enjoyable, so I end up doing it on vacation anyway.
I do enjoy blogging, but it is something I can easily procrastinate on if given an excuse.
I also tend to blog on vacation as long as it doesn’t interfere with more important plans. Have a great hike!
Thanks, I hope I do have a great hike.
