I've been climbing mountains for over 7 years. I climb mountains for the adventure, good company, the scenery, and most importantly to have the time of my life!
"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and diffrent sun." -Christopher Johnson McCandless
"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." -Oliver Wendell Holmes
