Trekking is like getting drunk. Is it a twisted analogy to trekking? Is it because I haven’t had a drink in months?
But to be honest, there is no need for a drink as long as there is trekking. And trekking with CTC is a bonanza. If trekking is like having a glass of Jägermeister (or insert your favorite here) with your best friends, then trekking with CTC is doing all that on a roller coaster.
All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking – Friedrich Nietzsche.
Lightens you up
Trekking lightens the mood. It helps forget the monotonies of every day life and gives a break from the routine. It gives you a slight buzz just like a glass of wine.
Often life brings some very heavy things to digest. Balance it out. Lighten up!
People generally shed their inhibitions and start conversing more when they are drunk. Same goes with trekking. Even a reserved person can surprise herself while on a trek.
“When in doubt listen” is when you’re sober. “When in doubt yap away” is the way to go when you’re drunk.
Makes you high
Trekking in this case is much better than alcohol because you are not only high but you have your senses in tact as well to enjoy your achievement.
Get high when you feel low. Trek when you need a pick.
Leaves you addicted
Once the trekking fever hits, especially after the CTC bug bites you, you are bound to come back for more to meet new people, conquer greater heights and explore nature and travel to new destinations.
Fever: till you sizzle, what a lovely way to burn. Aha, what a lovely way to burn – Ray Charles.
Great sleep enhancer
I can bet that all 43 ladies that trekked on saturday slept like a log only to wake up on sunday wondering when was the last time that ever happened!
She has many excellent qualities, but once she goes to sleep, it takes a minor nuclear explosion to wake her up – Tony Blair.
So that’s why I like to be drunk a.k.a trek with CTC. What about you?
