Lately I've realized that I really enjoy pushing my limits and going outside of my comfort zone -- especially in field target.
In 2017 I added Pennsylvania, Long Island and Maryland to my list of field target competitions. At first I was very hesitant, because of the long drive, but looking back I had a blast doing all of that traveling. So when I hear of the 2018 Spring Cajun Classic (4/27-29) in Baton Rouge, LA it stuck for some reason. After some research I figured it would be about 22 hours driving each way, about $120 in gas each way and I could camp nearby for the equivalent of a night in a hotel room I started to really consider it. Why was I so hesitant to do this? I discovered that my comfort zone in this case was 6 hours from my home. After realizing that it's just a lot of travel time I decided to go for it.
My other long-distance field target event will be the 2018 Nationals in Pleasant Hill, NC which is about 10 hours away in October.
What's your comfort zone? What are you doing to push that zone?
