The Mystical 41 Days of Trail Time

Numerology, I’m not into it. But, it’s interesting. Numerology promotes the idea that there is a mystical or divine relationship between numbers and events. Take the number 41. This is the number of days I intend to be on the Colorado Trail this summer.

In looking at the meaning of each number:

  • 4 has a focus on building a secure foundation for a future of long-term security
  • 1 is self-determined and self-sufficient, comfortable with being alone but can coexist well with others

Considering that I am planning to be on the Colorado Trial for 41 days:

  • this trail for me represents an activity that is to serve as a demarcation between my full-time working life and a transition to retired life, giving me time to formulate a solid plan for this next venture - represented by 4. 
  • this 500-mile trail requires much self-determination with periods of aloneness but coexistence with other trail mates – represented by 1. 

One could draw a curious parallel between the event and the number.

Further, the number 41 is a number that expresses an innate sense of personal freedom with building a secure foundation for the future. Personal freedom is a theme I’ve been working through as one of the primary reasons for this hike. The freedom of the trail is a common reason for many that hike.

One could conclude a connection between the number of days for this venture and the venture itself – that this trek of mine was meant to be on some sort of divine level.  

Go ahead, tear this crazy idea apart. I know I could on several levels. But, in being a little open minded, I think this is interesting, at least.

Then I thought: If I spend 40 or 42 days on the trail I don’t think it’s really going to matter. But wait, 41 days from now I’ll be 1 day into the trail… what?!?
