My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another book in the continuing saga of questioning abundance. Not exactly. In one part, it lays out the psychology behind why one often experiences a letdown after purchasing an item that one has craved. It also illuminates the exhausting situations we find ourselves in these days, as we consider what to eat, where to live, even what to do each day as we are bombarded by a ridiculous number of options at every turn. Sort of like why one looks at Goodreads. One way of coping with choice is to see what your friends choose. Time and time again, I found myself saying, ” Good point”, as I read through this book. And don’t we squander away time in the outdoors, or talking with friends, or children in dealing with all the choices we struggle with? This book was right up my alley. There is an amazing number of excellent ideas in it. I plan to re-read it. I am more convinced that ever that ” good enough” is going to be one of my daily mantras, that and it is a lonely walk if you pursue the idea of wanting to be sure that you are experiencing ” the best” choice in whatever category comes your way. I think this review is good enough for now. Later.
In the Path of Young Bulls details a team’s five-month-long stint of daily challenges along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, one of the USA’s toughest long-distance journeys. The book also serves as a resource for section and long-distance hikers in planning their own CDT adventures, by including daily mileages from starting and ending locations, as well as on-trail reports and conditions for each day’s hike.
