“Adventures, of course, are always associated with exploration. Yet they are the one thing which a real explorer tries to guard against. My favorite quotation is Stefansson’s dicutm: ‘Adventures are a mark of incompetence.’ It says so much in a very few words. It means that if you have an adventurous expedition you did not prepare yourself adequately. Adventures are a nuisance. They interface with work... If the explorer has a clear-cut problem to solve and an honest desire to do something really worthwhile he will prepare against adventures.
