Finished A Walk in the Woods today. Bill and Stephen walked a couple days in Maine, then decided to quit after Stephen started drinking again, got lost, and just generally messed up everything. Jeez.

I got to thinking that I would have a very hard time with hiking like that. Mostly because I really hate heights and being near cliff edges, and I’m positive that there would be situations like that on a hike through the mountains. I’m not very confident in my ability to not fall over at any moment–especially if I was carrying a 50 pound pack on my back.

So, bottom line is that I want to do some hiking, but on level ground or maybe over gently rolling hills with plenty of room on both sides of a wide path in case I fall over.
