"not for the achievement, but for the joy"--Noel Odell (paraphrased from memory of his AAC journal obit, ca. 1989)

Amended: Just found Houston's obit. in the 1989 AAJ on-line, and embarassedly note that my memory recalled it there, where it is not.

The point remains the same. And I'd wager Odell would subscribe to the judgment, even if he hadn't uttered it.

I'm always searching for freedom in the mountains, that's it.

Freedom from people
Freedom from our crazy society
Freedom from the money lovers (and i hate money)
Freedom from the cities....
