I read your earlier thread about trip planning. Glad to see you did it.

If I may suggest, you should change your byline from "victim of reality" to "Survivor of Reality" now that you done did it.

Keep it up, I'll be following along.
Originally I had tryed to plan every stop , every move . With my issues as I described them ... all that did was make it even harder to try and do it . In my original post in trip planning ... someone gave me them advise " Fuck it and ride " thats what I did. Every night I would look at my maps and see where campsites were and how I thought I could ride . It worked. .. nothing fancy

I've got a KLR and the same BILT helmet!

I do website work for a school in Utah that helps young adults who struggle with anxiety issues. You'd be too old for their program, but you might be interested in some of the things in their website. Check out their "Mindful Completion Model". You may find some things that would help you:

Keep fighting and keep riding. The real world is a beautiful place!

Subscribed!

I too can empathise with you, I know how utterly horrible it can be. It's wonderful to see that you're overcoming it to do something like this. I can imagine you'll end up being an inspiration to a fair number of people on here, both with your ride and how open you are about it all. It helps people be more aware and more likely to get help when needed if we can all be open about it :)

Hope the trip continues to go well, I'm really looking forward to reading up on all your exploits!

Extremely well done, and I mean that in the broadest sense.

I am quite familiar with the dark monkey that hides and waits to jump on us.

It is difficult for them to get a fix on us if we KEEP MOVING.

The KLR an excellent choice for that.

I will shout out to Rick1013 at the same time here and say you are most profound in your newb-ness,

You have a couple great, priceless quotable-quotes I will be sharing with others.

I have to believe that every time you give your anxiety the finger and push out that envelope with a successful experience, your world just got wider and brighter.

Keep resisting the voices of doubt and fear. Be smart, but tell your anxiety to f*ck-off. You've got a wonderful life to live. It's been waiting for you.

Words well spoken!

A tip of the hat to ya! You've probably inspired and done more for others that read this than for yourself. What an accomplishment in every sense of the word.

Thanks for sharing your adventure, including the internal thought process. It's very interesting to read about how different we all are. I think as the quote above says, if you keep pushing your boundaries out, soon you'll have left a lot of that anxiety behind. You've been through some of the best roads and best scenery this country has to offer - there's something therapeutic about that.
