"I have found with the passage of time a deeper and deeper satisfaction being in isolated, wild places. It's not so much a function of isolation but wilderness. It's that unrelenting, unforgiving, uncompromising sense of power you get in wilderness and the sense of humility that comes from being exposed to nature. It blew me away when I was a kid. There's almost an addictive quality to it: when you get used to one level, you want a bit more."
