Yes. Good company and lively discourse make all else tolerable.
Yes, almost as much as I enjoy mountaineering, skiing, snowshoeing, orienteering and - if the weather is bad - fishing.
Hashing way too long, mostly in Europe (Edinburgh, Paris, Bern) and Canada (Ottawa, Winipeg, Montreal), but just cannot kick the habit. Must be the great people I have met, the 'why else would I ever go here' places I have run in, and the beer.
