Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #211 – May 11, 2016



I feel so independent now. I can get anywhere I want to. I have the few essentials I need, and the few other things I need or want I can derive from the land. (on starting his 200-mile solo trek through the Brooks Range)

—DAVID COOPER, Brooks Range Passage, 1982
