Heading to Sundance 2012!
When I got up yesterday morning, I had a gut feeling to take different route on the way the way to Sundance. But at the last minute, in Fargo, I opted to stay on my original route, rather than head towards Billings. The result: 2heavy snow storms, poor visibility, VERY icy roads. It seemed ever direction I tried to go there just seemed to be more snow. I ended up skipping all the land marks I had wanted to visit and ended up staying in a different place that my original plan. I'm not even at my destination as a result of my cautious driving and various stopping throughout both storms I got hit by. I swear, the bad weather was following me.
The other thing that I'm finding exhausting are the long drives. I once drove 9 hours on 2 hours sleep, years ago. But I was with a group of people and there were more drivers.
Right now, I'm laying in my back seat behind a 24 hour gas station, tired. I've been on the road since 6am through a huge storm. It's now 9pm and yeah, it's getting taxing.
Other than wanting to attend the festival, one reason I came on this trip alone was to challenge myself. Those who are close to me knew way before I mentioned it on here that I was going on this trip alone--They said I was crazy and began to worry, understandably.
But I had to do this.
We all face challenges in our life, and a true test of character is how your react to these challenges. I think everyone has it in them to get through the tough times. Personally, not to share too much, I've been through a lot in the past few years. But here I am, in the back seat of my car, exhausted, alone, and hungry(I just got some food), heading to a festival. I'm going up make it there, albeit, later than expected.
Your cup is always half full, despite what anyone tells you.
