- Chain Saw
To trail builders this is a useful tool, like a motorized bicycle that doesn't go anywhere but is really good at cutting stuff into smaller kinds of stuff.
For the rest of us it is the moment we realized the true meaning of life and managed to sever the bonds of illusion that confined us within a prison of limited possibilities by the chains of habit.
That moment was the moment when we vowed to spend the rest of our lives backpacking. If possible.
While maintaining a steady income. If possible.
And dental insurance, etc.
