The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk. ~Mark Twain
The scenery and the weather were terrific nonetheless. Lil, Elby and Calfy were delightful companions. The less said about Pig, the better. He spent a little under two hours trying to sodomise a long-suffering and dignified labrador of advanced years.
