Sometimes I think "this is it, I won't hike another mile!", I feel like I've seen this hobby in and out, but then I start reading trip reports: the adventure, the existential feelings, the headache of gear loss, the fear, amazing sceneries which make you forget passage of time, the people you can meet, all the emotions you can experience, the stars at night.. and it pulls me in like a good book. It makes me want to pick up my backpack again..</p>
