A B-HAG is a big, hairy, audacious goal. I try and have one each year. The purpose is to stretch yourself, to make life more of an adventure, to create more passion and fire in your heart, and to just enjoy life more. My B-HAG this year is to peddle my bicycle 2,000 miles around the State of Oregon. Next summer, 2018, John Smith and I, are going to peddle from Newport, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia, approximately 4,000 miles. The following summer is when I am going to make a 8,500 mile trip all by myself with everything on my bicycle, no support vehicle and no riding partner. On that trip I will start at my house and end up in Portland, Maine having ridden in everyone of the lower 48 States. That trip will take 4 months, and I am planning on writing a book on the trip. And then in the year 2000 I am going to sail a sailboat to Hawaii. I am going to build the sailboat myself , and I plan on starting it in the next couple of months. I have already bought the plans for it. I have never been on a sailboat before, but part of my plan is to take lessons on sailing in Portland this summer and then to rent a boat in Seattle and sail it up in the San Juans for a couple of weeks. It sounds a little crazy, but that is what makes it fun. I haven’t figured out yet what the following summer adventures will be, but I always want to do something I haven done before, learn something I have never learned before, and go someplace I have never been before.
