What Is Best In Life?

Remember when Conan was asked, "What is best in life?"
He answered, "To crush your enemies , see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!"

Although the Barbarian brings up a few practical points, I prefer the simpler pleasures.
Like bacon on a chilly morning while camping.
What does it for you?


Safety fast, Bill

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller

Driving during a snow storm in the mountains at night. Yea I know I'm weird but that makes me smile.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

I'm really a big fan of waking up down at camp on a cold November morning before we go out deer hunting. The grandfather roaming around the kitchen making breakfast consisting of BACON, home fries, eggs, and toast. Really makes me feel peaceful

Rolling down a road in the Jeep, top and doors off, stereo blasting music...that is my zen.

Ah ha. I'm not the only one.

Sun Day: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f7/s-sun-day-384267/

And also everything about the 'waking up in camp with bacon' thing, except minus the deer hunting, and plus the wakeboard boat anchored a few feet offshore in a dead-calm lake. (and not in November)

And standing on top of a mountain after a couple days of incredibly hard work trying to get there.

And powder days.

And putting the last piece of wood in the woodshed and feeling ready for a big winter.

And getting home from work on the bike and hearing the pitter-patter of two-year-old feet ripping across the house upstairs coming to meet me.

We went camping over the weekend among an elk herd, about 98 of them. It was just so cool.

Ditto x100. Only mine is 4 and makes my day when I hear Hi Daddy right before he climbs on my feet to get in my arms.
