Actually, as an attorney who works in a large law firm, I feel I am in a position to use that cliche with 100% accuracy, without any caveats, exclusions, modifications or qualifications whatsoever. ;)

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, but...what the heck...

I think I would put it this way: my days backpacking are as memorable as my days working are forgettable. ;)

But I'd add this: the vividness of experience that is (for me) one of the primary attractions of backpacking can cut both ways. The highs are higher, but the potential lows are also lower. And IMO, it's impossible to fully appreciate the highs without acknowledging at least the potential of the lows. That's really the only point I was making.

ETA: And as a paralegal who works in a large law firm, I'll just note that when I do have a really bad day at work it's the attorneys who make it that way. ;)
