I agree - each day was a new day with new sights to see, people to meet,
weather to endure/enjoy,physical challenges to overcome. We never tired of
the trail - no long green tunnel for us folks (well, maybe a few too many
Brushy Mtns.!).  I will say that having spent the last 25 years stuck behind
a desk made it even sweeter, but that doesn't really matter - as Firefly
says just don't expect anything - just take it as it comes your way!
(another reason not to get too stuck into your schedule - leave yourself a
bit of room for serendipity!)
