"I'm always a true believer on, you know, you don't have to have the most incredible, best gear to really get an adventure started or do something that you want to in life, because I've noticed a lot of us are held back by material posessions by thinkging that we're not ready, and by just waiting around saying, 'one day I'll do it'."
