The name and address, along with the inspiration, for this blog came from a quote from Edward Abbey that is a personal favorite of mine. The quote is: “One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourself out. Be as I am-a reluctant enthusiast…a part time crusader,a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your live for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it is still there. So get ot there and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, run the rivers, breathe deep of that sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to your body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those deskbound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the bastards.
