@chris_lorimer walking the Pine Mountain tree line we set overlooking the valley. An epic day of struggle, running out of gas, walking up the mountain, prying car doors open with bare hands, throwing rocks into trees to rig lines and battling with my first high line experience. #slacklife #slackvida #balance #santabarbara

One final paragraph of advice, do not burn yourself out. Be as I, an ever reluctant enthusiast, a part time crusader, a halfhearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land, it is more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it is still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forrests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers. Breathe deeply of that yet sweet and lucid air. Sit quietly for a while and contemplate that precious stillness, that lovely mysterious and awesome space. -Edward Abbey -The Stoney Brothers
