What drives a hiker? (Part 2 of ?)
Earlier this week we introduced you to Chris Rabe, who had just embarked on a 4-month journey along the the Appalachian Trail. Such a trip requires a commitment of time and energy (including Chunks of Energy!)...and a solid intention. I can't imagine that anyone simply 'ends up' on the trail, although I would be interested in being proven wrong!
So what drives a hiker? What encourages someone to join the 9000 others who have completed the trail? What motivation was behind this decision to just go?
For Chris, it was the beauty of the views, and the chance to connect to them. In September 2010, National Geographic aired a documentary on the Appalachian Trail, which you can still watch. Rather just admiring them from the comfort of his home, he decided that this was worth spending time, money, and excitement on. High-definition television pales in comparison to a the natural high you get from the peak of a mountain...
I leave you with these words from Chris: "Everything else can be taken away from us except our experiences." I agree! You?
