Great Journeys

Posted August 4, 2009 10:21 a.m. EDT

What is the greatest journey you have taken so far?  What will be your next great journey?

What do you consider the true epic journeys of mankind?

Please share. I’ll send a copy of my CD “Peaceful Journey” to the blogger with the best answers.

Thanks to Bonnie Hemphill of Cary for inspiring today’s blog. Bonnie is currently canoeing a glacial river in the subarctic region of Canada. It’s a 36 day journey on the Thlewiaza River in caribou country. Bonnie’s mom and dad, Nancy and Todd Hemphill told me about this summer adventure when I ran into them at a gym in Cary. The Hemphills are following Bonnie’s odyssey at the following website:

One of my favorite journeys was Milford Track in Fiordland National Park on the South Island of New Zealand in April.   I blogged extensively about the trip billed as "the finest walk in the world."

Early in life I took a couple of 50 mile one day physical fitness hikes in Western NC. Last weekend I retraced my youthful footsteps in the Foothills.

What are your great journeys? Please share.
