The Adventurers' Gathering


Recommended Posts

Adventurer related discussions! 

 

*Note: You can participate in guild discussions regardless of your chosen guild. 

 

Adventurers are brave souls who fear nothing and are always curious about what's over the next hill or across the ocean.  They are often found working diligently with their allies to help ensure that every adventure leads down the correct path, exploring and learning for the sake of others.

 

* Fictional example: Indiana Jones, Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)

 

* Real-world example: Les Stroud (Survivorman); Cheryl Strayed who hiked 1100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail (Wild).

 

* Example Activities:  Hiking, Geo-caching, Travel, Exploration, Rock Climbing, Cave Diving, etc.

Still here.

 

2021 was quite a year for me. I started a new position at work as a quality inspector/CMM programmer. I bought a house (it's no Owlshire but it's mine :P ) and got a cat, and have been focusing on taking care of those two along with myself.

 

In 2022 I'm focusing on Boxing (and all the exercise/training that goes with it), Buddhism/Meditation, Fiction Writing, studying Tibetan, and prospecting for new jobs in my field and other possible career developments.

Congratulations on buying a house!  (My first house wasn’t an Owlshire, either!)

Besides my fitness goals on my thread, in 2022 I’m aiming for extracurricular professional development* in my narrative design role (something I didn’t have bandwidth for last year just trying to stay afloat), spirit work, and a bit of crafting. I want to be a more engaged family member, which also involves games—I want design a LARP/scavenger hunt on Owlshire for the Enting and spend more time playing board and console games with the Mr as part of our quality time. I’m trying to be better organized with my time and bought a Hero’s Journal (digital version) to play around with, seeing as gamification is a theme in my life. (Even my crafting groups have game-based framework!)

 

So… basically, a year of gaming, I guess? XD 

 

*This includes relevant courses, writing/designing side projects, and competitive analysis (yes, that means playing other games—I just got a Nintendo Switch and I’m so excited!).

Hey gang!

 

I consider myself an Adventurer - bike touring being my particular mode of adventuring. Most of 2022 is gonna involve acclimating to Washington D.C. (I'm moving in January), but I hope to make time for a bike adventure in there.

Hey fellow adventurers.

 

I have done a bit of cycle touring in my time but my bike is literally gathering cobwebs ATM.  Last year I did some pretty epic hiking but 2022 is mostly a blank canvas (Covid and financial restrictions may apply).

 

Now I just need to get a challenge going (maybe)

Thanks for this @spezzy. I miss gathering with all my fellow Adventurers.

 

All is mostly well with me. Life is wild with five kids (and a potential sixth). I finished my Master's in Educational Leadership, and hopefully soon I can begin my next adventure as a school administrator.

I've got a big walking adventure planned. Just hoping that this year, Covid will not tank it.

 

What are you planning to explore this year?

What do you have planned  @juliebarkley?  I love checking out others plans.

 

I've got this hike booked Jatbula Trail in the Northern Territory, Australia

and on the early planning stage of the Australian Alps Walking Trail but at the best this may be the end of 2022 - start of 2023 due to the logistics/difficulty/seasonality of the hike.  Still on the 'maybe list'.

 

I do have a possible option to to some walking in Italy, but I really doubt that international travel will be a thing for 2022, especially if it isn't something that I am a bit 50/50 on to begin with.

still don't have internet (other than my phone hot spot) and no idea when it'll be coming! So it's been pretty difficult to feel connected and engaged recently (I'm not a huge phone user that way - call me old or whatever, but I'm just not as good with the typing on the phone). 

 

But we are pretty much all moved in to the new house and starting to get settled.

I am planning a walk across my city. I did it north-south a few years ago, now I want to do east-west. It's a really long walk though. Over 100km. More than double the length of the previous one. Gulp.
