The big idea of adventure education is really about relationships: intra and interpersonal. On top of that is also your relationship with the environment (ekistic) and nature. I hope you had found out who your true friends are but am wondering why you need to do that? Is it because you had been let down by your friends before? At the end of the day, knowing who your true friends are is important but knowing who you are is even more important. Congrats on your successful summit climb and I really hope you have established a relationship with yourself, team mates and NATURE!
