War and Peace

When people first meet Kobae and I tell them that a little later in the year when it warms up more and he gets acclimated to Base Camp again we'll go hiking three to five miles most days. The first question is "Does he go by himself?" I explain that I go with him. Then they ask "What do you do out there all day?" I tell them "I take two canteens and a book. Something short, like War and Peace." If they know War and Peace they laugh understandingly. So, I don't know, just seemed like the thing to do. Now, I can pull out all 1200 plus pages and show them I know of what I speak.
