Back to Blogging
I don’t know why I haven’t been blogging much, it’s not like I don’t have the free time. I have a beautiful tent in the Chyulu Hills of Kenya equipped with a beautiful log desk and yet I haven’t sat down an done my blogging in quite some time. I am going to greatly reduce the amount of time I spend on social media and I’m going to refocus on my blogging. For me blogging is a much more pure way to get my stories across to my friends and family, social media is single bites of information and nobody wants to post or see negativity on FB or IG. This being the case, it’s sometimes difficult to portray in any actuality, what’s going on in my life. It’s not all sunsets and nature for me but if you look at my FB that’s all you see. Living in Kenya can be incredibly amazing and incredibly frustrating and stressful at the same time. I live in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever lived yet I’m terribly isolated from my friends and family, I can’t just go out for dinner and the nearest town is over 2 hours away by very rough road. So here I sit, very much wanting to get my blogging back on a roll so that years from now I can look back and remember everything, not just the glimmering sunsets and majestic animals, though that is some of the amazing stuff I see almost daily.
There’s a ton of stuff coming up in my life, I just purchased a 1977 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser and I’m in love with it. While sitting in the bush, surfing the terrible internet, I researched and scoured the web for the perfect truck for me. After months of research and several offers, I finally found the perfect FJ40 for me and had it shipped to my best friends house where it patiently awaits my arrival. That truck should make for some interesting blogging.
Another amazing part of my life is I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in June with Tricia and it was the most incredible and tough experience of my life. Five and a half days up, one and a half days down and a lifetime of memories. We raised over $1,500 for Harlem Grown and feel great about helping the kids of Harlem grow some yummy vege. You can read all about that adventure on NoBackup. As though that adventure with Tricia wasn’t enough, we are going on another adventure in April 2017, this one is sure to test us both physically and mentally, we are racing a Tuk Tuk across the width of India. Yeah, you just read that right, we’re taking a glorified lawn mowerish vehicle on a 1,700 mile race over two weeks. More info on that from me later but if you’re inclined to join, go here to learn more Rickshaw Run. So that’s about it for today, as I sit here in Nairobi dreaming of adventures past, present and future, I’m sure I’ll have some more content for the blogging site soon. I know it’s not all aviation based but I’ve changed my website to be more about my adventures and not just the ones with wings. Maybe I should change the website to Advenwingture or something. For now it’s going to stay Wingster.aero and if that offends you at least I can say I accomplished something today.
