Interesting story. I've had slightly similar experiences just from camping. Every thanksgiving me and some of my family/friends go high into the mountains in British Columbia (where I live) and spend about 14 days there. I normally just bring a back pack and sleep on the bench seat in my truck.
After 2 or 3 days I'm always saying things like "Man this sucks, I wish I had a nice bed to sleep on" or really missing video games and tv. But
then about 5 days or so of constantly fishing, hiking and hunting small game for dinners I start to forget that stuff even exists. It just fades out
of my mind completely without realizing it.
On the very last day, when I realize that I'm going home my regular mentality kind of kicks in again and I look forward to having a hot shower and
sleeping on a big mattress again. But then I get home and it's like..... I want to just go back to the woods. I sit down to play Xbox or watch a
movie and I'm like wow.... this is really stupid. I can't even be entertained by it.
Then I think deeper. People literally spend their entire lives just sitting on their ass, soaking in all this crap without even taking a glimpse at
I don't have any profound moments with "God" or anything while I'm in the woods. Just a simple realization of how messed up our reality really is.
