What Matters to Alex?

Project What Matters – Alex

Alex is from Seattle. He and a buddy, both 21, were headed across the U.S. alexon bikes, and from their load I could tell they were not savvy at this type of endeavor. For a reason I was never quite clear on, they decided to pass through Yosemite where we met up in the backpackers campground. Their plan was to ride trails up to Tuolumne then onward out to 395. Over beers and a ton of laughter in camp, I unveiled the folly in their plan, at which time they altered their route.

The next morning before I took off for the high country I asked Alex, What Matters?

Alex: Looking back without regrets. Maximum enjoyment from life.


Ride on, Alex.
