Goal: Climb a mountain or something

I’ve never really had a wish to climb a mountain, or to climb anything at all, to be honest. Recently, I read Jon Krakauer’s “Into Thin Air” - a personal account of the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster. Now... Now... I mean, of course what I took from Jon’s story wasn’t a feeling of lust after reading about the 8 deaths that occurred during his expedition. However, what I did take from it was the urge to feel free. I want to feel like a conqueror - for my own personal reasons, I feel like I must now climb a mountain... Or at least climb something. I can only imagine the feeling of accomplishment after completing such a feat. (Photo by Earl Eliason/iStock)
