“It had nothing to do with gear
or footwear
or the backpacking fads
or philosophies of any particular era
or even with getting from point A to point B. 

It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild.
With what it was like to walk for miles
with no reason other than to witness
the accumulation of trees and meadows,
mountains and deserts,
streams and rocks,
rivers and grasses,
sunrises and sunsets.
The experience was powerful and fundamental.
It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild,
and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.” 

― Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
