Do not watch this video.
Do not watch this video if you love the outdoors. Do not watch this video if you are this close to quitting your day job. Do not watch this video if you have the Sunday blues, and you're dreading another Monday morning at your desk.
Do not watch this - because this story could really be about any of us. Any of us living in a town we love, enjoying the perks of a well-paying job; and whose social circle makes up the difference when money and location stop cutting the mustard. In short, this is the story about someone who really left it all behind and stuffed her life into a backpack - to climb a total of 50,000 feet, hike 125 miles, and spend several months living in a tent.
But if you're as intrigued with this woman's story as I was and still am, then please allow me to introduce...Heather Redderson.
Special thanks to Karen Knapstein for introducing me to Heather!
Oh, and pardon the sound quality - we did our best, despite an ocean between us and a squeaky little old Mac on my end.
