I’m in love with this… it makes me want to drop everything I’m doing, go west, and just experience life. I miss experiencing life… right now I feel like I’m just “getting through this” – except I realized I’ve been getting through this for the last 3 years and will be for the next 4-5. This is no longer a want, it’s a need.

My heart aches to explore. I yearn for my body to beg me to stop, and keep going until I don’t even want to make my boil-to-eat meal-in-a-bag. I want to sleep under the stars and be just a little bit scared of that rustling 20 yards to my right. I want to wake up at 6am with this sun, ready for the day, not knowing if I’ll spontaneously swim in a stream or perch in a tree or share my  delicious meal-in-a-bag with. I want to go to bed a little after dusk, feeling my aching legs and full belly while listening to the crackles of a dying fire and crickets. I want, I need, I devour. Someday soon.


So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go.
