Camel's Hump is in the distance (one of my goal Mtns) - viewed southwest of Mt. Elmore

New Adventure??!!! Here I Come!

I've had a bit of an identity crisis in my many years with SparkPeople. I think I've had a couple different usernames. Katyunleashed was my username for a long time, then I changed it to Terra_Luna because I just felt like I wasn't unleashing myself and I was frustrated.

Terra_Luna was supposed to remind me to seek balance and get back in tune with rhythms of the earth, moon, life, work, family, fun time. It didn't work very well. I'm returning to Katyunleashed because ultimately that is what I want for myself. To unleash my AWESOMENESS!

So here I am, for better or worse (but hopefully better!) Unleashing my adventurous self on my journey through life.

Things I want to do in my adventurous life:
- Ride the Harpoon Point to Point Bicycle Race to raise money for the Hunger-Free Vermont
- Finish my first novel (I'm almost there!!!)
- Hike Camels Hump
- Hike the Worcester Range (13 miles!)
- Hike Mt. Lafayette
- Learn Blacksmithing (maybe make a sword...)
- Learn archery
- Learn basic electrical work
- Learn basic plumbing skills
- Bicycle to and from work one day (9 miles one way, uphill for half of it!)
- Hike around Mt. Saint Helens
- Visit the Redwoods again
- Visit Yosemite National Park
- Drive a race car
- Go to Alaska
- Go to Kamchatka
- Go to England
- Go to Ireland
- Go to Poland/Germany
- Take a genealogy field trip (or trips)
- Publish four books!
- Be a volunteer federal or state park host for a summer season
- Travel to every state in the United States with my husband and anyone in the family who'll come
- Learn how to drive a motorcycle
- Retrofit a 1967 Pontiac Firebird to be more ecologically friendly (with no computer parts!)
- Learn sign language
- Learn German (for family history research)
- Learn Russian (just because the alphabet is interesting)
- Learn French (so I can go to Canada and not get tripped up)

Personal Information:
I'm a married mom of two awesome people. Let me just say again, they are awesome, but I guess I am a bit partial. I am here because I need to find my awesomeness. I tucked it away behind about 130+ pounds of fat and fear way back when. I know my awesomeness wants to come out of hiding, I just need the courage to be me.

Other Information:
I live in Central Vermont and I like all 5 seasons (yes, five - mud). :-)
