Some Favorite Quotes:
“If happiness is a rock and a pair of shoes, then dirtbags experience happiness a lot.” – Seven Reasons Why Dirtbags are Awesome
“There are many benefits to car camping. First, there is little setup required. There are no tent poles to assemble, stakes to pound into the dirt, or flies to line up over the tent doors. Most cars are waterproof, so all of your gear and clothing should stay dry inside. Better yet, you don’t have to stuff your vehicle, soaking wet, into a little bag after a rainy night like you would your tent.” – The Art of Car Camping
“I was hangboarding in the hotel stairwell today. I roped it to a pipe…It really makes you feel like a weirdo, being this shirtless dude in the stairwell maxing on small edges while housekeeping walks by.” – Alex Honnold in INTERVIEW: Alex Honnold on “Alone on the Wall” and Climbing While on a Book Tour
“For some odd reason, I was incredibly happy to be belaying in the rain. I was outside, the mist rolling in was beautiful, and the water pouring off the surrounding cliffs gave one the feeling of being in the center of a waterfall. I’d also remembered my rain jacket.” – Romping in the Rain
