Day 17: My lesson today

Day 17: My lesson today

I had to walk down to see Phillipa at her photography studio in the Junction, and I thought because it was above freezing I didn't need my shells; or my hat; or my neckwarmer; or my mittens. Well, by the time I got down to Phillipa's I was quite frozen. 

Luckily when it was time to go home, Bobby came and met me and brought me a hat and neckwarmer, and my walk home was much more comfortable. 

Lesson learned. I actually feel quToday for one of the few times this winter I was cold. How you may ask, was I cold when it was +2. Well, because I didn't dress properly! How else. Ironic yes it was.ite foolish, being the spouter of all things "there's no cold day just bad gear"  Well I am not going out without my snow-shells again before May.

I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
