Being out on your own in the wild is awesome. Your circadian rhythm is aligned with the sun, your exposure to pollution and synthetic radio wave emissions are minimized, your appreciation for the amenities of daily life that we take for granted in the ‘developed’ world is increased, and you are left with a humbling immersion in the earth that we all come from and are returning to. I always joke that if I could do anything, and I had no responsibilities, I would just stay out there – and maybe one day I will. For the time being, I highly recommend getting out in the wild, getting frozen, bug bit, body stressed, tired, and everything that comes with only occasionally getting outside. It is all worth it for even a brief connection to this wonderful planet. I have never been in the extreme cold or hot (without ‘permanent’ structures around), but I feel like every landscape has something to offer in the way of beauty, majesty and humility. Some say the land is unforgiving, but I like to think of it as, the land has no room for lies.
