From Chapter 9 of Alaska Traveler:
When I was ten I’d had it up to here with breaking trail while carrying a full pack while wading through swamps while slapping at mosquitoes while yelling to scare off bears. I told my mom when she got a real job on shore that paid enough so we could buy our meat from Bayview Mercantile that I had pitched my last tent. Which was why, a few years ago when my friend Linda Longstaff suggested hiking the Resurrection Trail, I responded, well, shall we say, in the negative.
