The delusive idea that men merely toil and work for the sake of preserving their bodies and procuring for themselves bread, houses, and clothes is degrading, and not to be encouraged.

-Henry David Thoreau
“There is always a sadness about packing. I guess you wonder if where you’re going is as good as where you’ve been.”
-Richard Proenneke -One Man’s Wilderness
