Just returned from hiking 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago (no taxis or pack shuttle service either).
The Columbia Gorge - how lucky are we to have that in our own backyard. Next major hike will be the Chemin du Puy in France - gotta save up for that though.
Pleasure inducing chemicals in my brain are activated by laughter, 800km hikes, witty banter, learning anything new, inspiring quotes…”Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." Faulkner
