One of the benefits from being back in Canada is getting to indulge in all of the outdoors beauty and activities! Most recently, I’ve enjoyed quadding!
My family owned a quad when I was in my late teens, but unfortunately, I never got to experience quad-life outside of our backyard….. until now that is.
When David was visiting from the UK, my dad thought it would be a great idea to put us on a quad, and lead us through some muddy, twisting, winding roads…paths… trails (??) I was super excited, but admittedly REALLY nervous!
“Just hold tight to the handles, find a speed your comfortable at, and on a steep incline, lean forward!” were the words of advice before I put it into first gear and took off.
Thankfully, the entire trip was a SO much fun! We drove through mud trails, painting ourselves in a sleek layer of mud, and even (just barely) avoided hitting a tree (sorry David!)
And you know what, after a few minutes, I started to relax and actually ENJOY and CRAVE the speed and the adrenaline of going up steep inclines! Crazy to think I almost chickened out!
It’s just yet another reminder that sometimes, we have to embrace being uncomfortable to experience some real, out of boundaries fun!
Here’s to the next time!
