We're at day 7 of our road trip and we're in Polson Montana, still 1000 miles from home. Ben is doing incredibly well and handling the trip with ease from moment to moment. He doesn't realize, nor care, how far we have come or how far we have to go. He's a true caveman.
Seeing the world through a child's eyes was a saying that I didn't understand until Ben came along... now it makes perfect sense. He doesn't mind traffic- rather he laughs and points at the clouds.
We have been hiking nearly every day. The few miles of running that I've done haven't been timed or measured. My 4-5 day rest is stretching in to 6-7. Soon, maybe 8.
