I also enjoyed Pern's The Great Divide.  He coined the term "the NFE's,"
i.e., the tendency to push farther, succumbing to the concern that you
haven't gone far enough.  He had, he said,   
 "A bad case of the NFEs.  NFE stands for Not Far Enough - the irresistible
compulsion to go on and on till you ruin whatever you're doing." (Stephen
Pern,  The Great Divide,  1989.)

The Great Divide by Stephen Pern. I also enjoyed Hydro Heidi's account of
her trip on Trailjournals.
