About
The good life starts with being present and being on purpose.
We should all follow the path that makes us happy and well... content in body, mind, and spirit... with a positive purpose.
I'm David Ashley, David on Earth when I'm on trail. And I am SO thrilled you are reading this.

A little about me: I've been happily married for all my adult life to the same wonderful woman.
She gave me two beautiful girls who blessed me with four grandchildren.
Currently I live in Colorado, but I've lived throughout the Midwest and traveled the world for 20 years when I was in the Air Force.

On this site I bring you stories of the trail and insights from my pursuit of the good life. I've logged 2000 trail miles over the past 6 years. In 2018 I hiked the 500-mile Colorado Trail. In 2020 I began my section hike of the Arizona Trail.
