“I didn’t want to wait until I had a mortgage or a family to do the things I actually wanted to do in life. I’m getting all the big accomplishments out of the way first, and then I’ll do college and all the boring shit. I wanna hike the Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail and maybe Everest. There’s more going on out here than back home. I’m just trying to see really what my ability is. I feel like nobody tests themselves anymore, and I wanna know exactly what my limits are.”
