We’ve had to change our field trip day last spring. “Field Trip Friday” sounds better than “Field Trip Wednesday or Thursday or whatever day works.” So I’m keeping the name. Now, I am taking my own mini-field trips on Fridays.
One of my goals for this year is to let my mind wander around a bit. For me, this requires walking or cross-country skiing. I’ve had a few great solo hikes this year, but hadn’t figured out anyway to make it a consistent thing.
In May I started working in the Polar Bears International office on Fridays. This month I realized I could take a change of shoes and sneak a walk into my day. It isn’t all day in the woods, but it is an hour or so on a trail edging Bozeman.
A little alone time on my feet is amazing. I think you should try it.
