Inspiring words...

"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 dangerous 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 different sun." - Christopher McCandless

I love this quote, this is from Christopher McCandless or maybe better known as Alexander Supertramp. I wish when we were in Alaska we could have gotten a chance to follow the Stampede Trail to the "Magic Bus" he lived in and eventually died in during his journey into the wild.
