Very interesting to hear perspective from the person left at home. I appreciate the information and will keep it in mind every time my girlfriend requests the "I'm Off" and the "Back Safe" text messages before and after my trips.Jul 11, 2007 at 1:22 pm #1395097

I mean to take a listen to this when I get home. If its good I'll recommend it to my girlfriend. I always feel a little guilty leaving her.

After 18 years of marrage my wife looks as foward to my little trips as I do. (is that bad?)Jul 12, 2007 at 11:26 am #1395175
I feel that it is good to have a break from each other now and then. It makes you appreciate the person and all that they bring to your life. However, the main point is to communicate with each other and make sure BOTH of you are comfortable with the situation. Thanks, Sara KavanaghAug 5, 2007 at 5:17 pm #1397492

Can I post an alternate view of the world without disagreeing with anything said in the podcast?
My wife and I go on walks together. We have always done so, from before we were married. (We also rock-climbed together.) There are advantages:
* All the guilt things about leaving someone behind are gone completely
* We know exactly what the other person can handle under almost any conditions
* We can rely on each other to a far greater extent
* Each of us monitors the other's performance and well-being continuously, increasing our combined safety
* We share all our gear: this makes the total weight significantly less
* We sleep snuggled together under a shared quilt arrangement in the cold – this is a LOT warmer than each person being in his/her own tent
Written just after we returned from 3 months mountain-walking together in France. We were even equally exhausted by the end! :-)Nov 2, 2011 at 10:00 am #1797784
The link to the podcast seems to be broken. Does anyone have an updated location or alternate way to listen/read the interview?
