This thread has a rule: you are not allowed to post or reply unless you include an Edward Abbey quote that has not yet been posted! Deletion imminent!

Now that the formalities are out of the way let's get to our important business:

"Men on an outing feel obliged to stay up drinking to the vile and bilious end, jabbering, mumbling and maundering through the blear, to end up finally on hands and knees, puking on innocent sand, befouling God's sweet earth. The manly tradition." - Monkey Wrench Gang

A city man is at home anywhere, for all big cities are much alike. But a country man has a place where he belongs, where he always returns, and where, when the time comes, he is willing to die.

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

High technology has done us one great service: It has retaught us the delight of performing simple and primordial tasks--chopping wood, building a fire, drawing water from a spring

It is not death or dying that is tragic, but rather to have existed without fully participating in life- that is the deepest personal tragedy

I have written much about many good places. But the best places of all, I have never mentioned.

I've wrecked and ravaged half my life in the pursuit of women, and I suffer the pangs of about seventeen regrets – the seventeen who got away.
