"His way is in the whirlwind and the storms."
Mole skin is a must, duct tape is hiker's gold, and always- always stake down your tent. Three pieces of advice I recently gave to a family considering doing a rim-to-rim Grand Canyon hike. My hiking companions, and my daughter and I gained this wisdom the hard way.
Our blisters taught us about mole skin, a blown out shoe made duct tape a staple, and a whirlwind catching an unsecured tent made for Dorothy from Kansas moment.
Adversity is a good teacher. Its lessons become embedded in our mind. It causes us to do thing differently the next time...to be transformed.
