"The definition of wilderness is looking around for miles and miles, and not seeing housing developments or big buildings. It's peaceful. You feel so free. You're not under pressure by your parents, teachers, or others."

"Wilderness is important to me. It's important because it's the real deal. Nothings fake, everything is just natural and peaceful."

"...While you're in the wilderness you just change as a person. You become more open to try things and you just become a better person. You forget about all the stress and just become you!"
