I am overwhelmed by all the planning and prepping. I am attempting to become a bike mechanic, fast bike rider, to improve my endurance, learn to use a Garmin (arrgh, another topic all together) and so on and so forth. Still I have been neglecting one bit of the planning, what to knit on the divide?
Enter knitting. Light weight, portable, and keeps your mind occupied. Who can worry about bears and cougars when you have to get to the end of the round and keep the pattern straight on the lace socks you are knitting? And if you need to fall asleep just knit a few rows in straight stockinette stitch and you will soon be in dreamland
I have knitted in some beautiful spots, and when I get home I have a great souvenir of where I have been. Wearing the item, or in some cases just looking at it and wondering why I made such a strange garment will bring back trip memories.

I highly recommend knitting to all outdoorspersons with overactive imaginations. Soothing, complicated enough to make you forget about predators and tedious enough to help you fall asleep. Best of all when you get home you have a lovely new garment to wear on your next adventure.
