The curse of mortality. You spend the first portion of your life learning, growing stronger, more capable. And then, through no fault of your own, your body begins to fail. You regress.

As your wisdom and experience are peaking, your traitorous body becomes a prison.

They are beginning to seek the healing relaxation that is possible in wild country. In short, they want it.
