I just started reading the book Wild. I cried through most of the first part there, and I go through periods where she frustrates me, but I’m finding it fascinating. Its always neat to hear the opposite-of-expert guide. Of someone who just jumped into something with really no clue. Because I feel like I am constantly in that stage, and its nice to remember that everyone is.
And despite the gross parts about her feet, it still makes me really want to go hiking.
What books are you reading?
Yeah that Cheryl Strayed is a bit of a wacko to me…however I enjoyed the book as well and its nice to read a non-technical book about a regular person just trying to figure themselves out on the trail as well. I appreciate her brutal honesty even if it’s not flattering to herself. Isn’t that to at least some small degree why we all go out and hike? To get away and clear our minds?
Oh and I’m starting to read “The Snow Leopard” by Peter Mattiessen
