"I went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in."  
- John Muir
"There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail knowing that everything you need is on your back.  It is a confidence in having left all inessentials behind, and of entering a world of natural beauty which has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a deadweight."  
- Paul Theroux (The Happy Isles of Oceana: Paddling the Pacific)

"Walk-about acts as a kind of remedy when the duties and obligations of life cause one to lose track of his true self.  What's intriguing about walkabout is that there's no physicial goal:  It simply continues until one becomes whole again."  
- Rolf Potts (Vagabonding)
