"Land or sea, I’m at home in the world. Wind, wave, stars and swell, I see islands beyond the horizon. Climb, traverse, belay and rappel, I dance with the mountains to the wind song. Tell me I shouldn’t and I must, tell me I can’t and I will, I would rather have a body full of scars than a mind full of fears. And when my time is done, when the wind has waned and sun has set, I will look forward to my NEXT adventure!" - Survival Gal

From the day we're born, we gather the skills and knowledge of a lifetime which, upon rare occasion, become focused into a singular life or death event.
