Going Native 

Helen Thayer is bloody hardcore. She climbed her first mountain at age nine, and was the first woman to trek solo to the North pole at age 50. Her latest adventure, a precedent-shattering stay with the wolves in the Yukon, is the subject of a fascinating article in today's Post.

Whenever I read stuff like this, I want to go do it. Maybe not in the arctic (I'm not so big on the cold), but trekking through the jungle or climbing a mountain or something. Perhaps someday I will.
