The year 2018 is drawing to a close — (can that possibly be true?) — so it’s time to ask you readers to share your stories about your personal best day(s) of this year.

Did you climb a mountain, try a new adventure, win the lotto, win over your true love, learn a new skill, tick off an item on your bucket list, finally change your life to what you always wanted…?

Write a story — 300-500 words or so — and send it to me at editor@ncwgoodlife.com, along with digital photos.

We’ll publish a few of the stories in the January 2019 issue. Plus, one story writer will be chosen for a $100 gift certificate to one of our advertisers. Perhaps that can be the start of a new adventure.

But, don’t mull this over too long — the deadline is Friday, Dec. 7.

Editor Mike Cassidy looking over Wenatchee from Saddle Rock

Speaking of climbing a mountain, yes, that’s me above, high over Wenatchee on an outlook next to Saddle Rock. We made the hike after reading Molly Steere’s story about her relationship with Wenatchee’s icon — see page 16.

It maybe wasn’t my best day in 2018, but it was a darn pretty fall day and a trip my legs remembered for the rest of the week.

This was my first trip up the new trail on the south side of Saddle Rock, a nice, clearly-defined trail, but let’s be honest, quite steep in places. At the top, another hiker suggested the northside climb near the WRAC is less challenging.

Good advice for another day.

Best days are when you feel on top of the world. Enjoy The Good Life.

— Mike
