"For that man who travels by his own
exertions no day can be dull and no journey without an abiding interest....Very wisely it
was said, All travel is dull exactly in proportion to its rapidity." HW
Tilman, "Snow on the Equator," McMillian, 1938. Reprinted in
"The Seven Mountain-Travel Books," published by The Mountaineers, Seattle, 1983. Tilman
bicycled across Africa from Cameroon to Kenya in 1933.
