Jeff Johnson: The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn't even think to ask.
Yvon Chouinard: Taking a trip for six months to get in the rhythm of it. It feels like you can go on forever doing that. Climbing Everest is the ultimate and the opposite of that. Because you get these high powered plastic surgeons and CEO's, they pay $80,000 and have sherpas put the ladders in place and 8000 feet of fixed ropes and you get to the camp and you don't even have to lay out your sleeping bag. It's already laid out with a chocolate mint on the top. The whole purpose of planning something like Everest is to effect some sort of spiritual and physical gain and if you compromise the process, you're an asshole when you start out and you're an asshole when you get back.
Yvon Chouinard: The word 'adventure' has just gotten overused. For me, adventure is when everything goes wrong. That's when the adventure starts.
Old Villager at March: I am an old deer from the mountains. We are related to the deer. Don't forget it.
