That, my friend, is magic.
The "adventure" may be too big for some generations who are locked into the social media lifestyle, seem to need an "APP" for every crucial life skill and don't understand the "magic" of anything having difficult, dangerous or dirty in the equation. I wonder if there is a sort of "death of dreaming" in our younger society these days?

Glad I was able to get out while I was youngish... at 37.
