    Default How do you keep motivated when the days get shorter?

    I've had a great summer getting out and biking etc after work. Trying to keep motivated when it gets dark early is a challenge...

    More motivated here. Less time to get outdoor things done, so hustle, hustle, hustle!

    I do lots of stuff in the Fall so I try to stay positive and think of all the rest I'll get come winter after a busy summer farming and doing the markets. I am going backpacking next week...75 miles across the Great Smokies, then two weeks later we are horse camping and trail riding. After that is Thanksgiving and turkey processing and sales, then the holidays and then maybe I'll have time to do some fun inside stuff like jigsaw puzzles! I enjoy doing that but rarely have a free minute any time but the deepest winter.
