I have sat around campfires, singing songs late into the night. I have hiked through subfreezing blizzards. I have skied many double black diamonds and slid down one on my chest. I have seen glaciers calve into the ocean. I have explored hidden valleys and secret caves. I have used ice tools and crampons to climb out of a moulin. I have watched a jökulhlaup.
I have been the captain of a space shuttle, and I have directed one from Mission Control. I have gazed upon nebulae, and I have seen the moons of Jupiter. I have written stories and poems. I have searched ghost towns and abandoned fortresses for their lost legends.
