OUTDOORS

A quote by Doug Peacock out of Outside Magazine. I think this is great: “Don’t just bang down the trail thinking about your girlfriend or your stock portfolio. Go like another animal. All of a sudden you’re part of an ancient system again: You stop, listen more often, scent the wind. And after four or five days, something happens. You’re part of the original landscape, a far older, more faded world. If you’re comfortable with yourself, go solo. Solitude is the deepest well I know, and it’s your right to drink from it. Forget all the risk-free literature you read from the BLM or the Park Service or anybody else that’s covering their ass legally. And no GPS devices; the opportunity to get lost on today’s planet is a privilege.”
