2015 was an awful year for me for many reasons... one of those was a very toxic, controlling relationship whose end was devastating to me. When it ended, I totally lacked confidence in myself and my abilities. At some point during that year, my sister, @nharder718 sent me a link to a Buzzfeed story about @campingwithdogs and I was totally inspired... But. I had never even gone hiking on my own. Boots was so small. Was it even safe for me to take him or to go alone? I spent many weekends the rest of that year testing our limits with little hikes and day hikes, sometimes failing but learning a ton. It helped me to get back to myself, to see that I could do these things on my own, just me and Boots.
And then Chris and Ranger came along and started joining our adventures, taking us to places we'd never ventured before. After weeks and months of pushing it back, we finally made it out for Boots' first tent camping trip this weekend!! He loved it and he did so well- I'm so proud of him. It wasn't the solo camping trip I'd always imagined for us, but it was even better than I could have pictured.
