“In ’62 me, and Chuck Pratt got arrested in Winslow, Arizona, for riding freight trains back home from the East Coast. We spent 2 weeks in jail and lost 20 pounds each eating the white bread and beans they fed us. Sons of bitches charged us with ‘no visible means of support, and wandering aimlessly.’ Back in Yosemite Valley we fattened up on cat food, oatmeal, potatoes, ground squirrel, blue grouse and porcupines that we assassinated ala’ Trotsky with an ice axe. It wasn’t easy but we had wild places and new routes to explore. We were completely free.” – Yvon Chouinard
