“Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of the wise.”
“Our plan was simple, as good adventures are to be. The best adventures are those that ring true, that can be summarized in a sentence or two, and planned on the back of a receipt from your book and map shop.”
“Adventure is a state of mind, a spirit of trying something new and leaving your comfort zone. It’s about enthusiasm, ambition, open-mindedness and curiosity.”
“I do it because it’s fun. I do it because it’s miserable and difficult and also because it is easier in many ways than the complicated confusion and stress and haggle of modern life. I do it because I love the wild, silent beauty of the empty places in our planet.”
