I have learned so much in the past few days it is crazy. I learned a lot about Lead Climbing and I learned a lot about my mom. Both of those things have really made my head spin around. For lead it was mostly that I have so much more that I need to learn and that I really need to work on my climbing skills. I want to get better and stronger. I want to be able to do more routes and to feel confident in not only myself but also when it comes to belaying others. When I get home I have so much work that needs to be done and I have so many techniques to perfect. For the meantime though I will take what I got. Im just happy that I knew someone who could teach me and was willing to let me borrow their gear. I definitely cant wait for the next adventure and to try going back outdoors again.
As for my mom I was so excited to see her and this new place that she moved to. I had never been to Ashland Kentucky before and I was a little excited to see this new place. Not only that but to hug her, see her, and just catch up with her. I had heard that the new place she moved to wash her childhood home and that her grandmother had passed it down to her so all in all I was stoked about this adventure.
When I got there I was surprised by the sight of things. The house had been cleaned up a lot but it needed so much more work. Carpets were torn out, the porch wasn't finished, boxes were laying around, the shower in one room didn't work, the toiled in another was down, and of course the tile in some spots was falling apart. I had been warned about the state of the place but seeing it in person was a lot to take in. Yet it had been worse a year ago so with all things considered, I was happy with the results and that it didn't smell like cat******everywhere.
Other then that the place was beautiful. I could tell that her grandparents put a lot of love into the place and I could tell that they were going to make the home gorgeous again. They want to do so much but only can do little things here and there since they are having an estate battle right now. Of course that is another long story that I will not tell you since it is their personal matter but it still is rough and gave me flash backs to what we had to deal with when my grandmother passed away.
So much happened and so much is happening. This week so far has been spectacular and I am so happy with how I feel. This road trip has re-lit that fire in me and I couldn't be more confident with myself and my life. I truly feel like traveling is what I am meant to do and when I get everything together I can't wait to go to full time.
Life is so good.
