About Me: Why I Walk

You know, I sometimes wonder why on earth I keep going on these darned long-distance walks. I've never found a pair of boots or socks that doesn't give me blisters, I've been soaked to the skin more times than I can remember, and my ideal state is sitting in a nice, quiet country pub, sipping real ale and enjoying the warm glow of a real fire. But something drives me to do stupid things like walking up volcanoes or crossing entire countries by foot, and this is a slightly pointless attempt to explain why I love to walk.
