"A womans place its on the trail"
could we please move on. I don't like seeing the words puncture and penis used in the same sentence.
Ischemia is what happens in a number of bad things, including stroke, myocardial infarction and other events.
Priapism is a bad thing as the lack of fresh blood usually doesn't result in death of the penis, but causes blood clots and scarring that prevent future erection. The procedure to reduce this risk is really not nearly as bad. The procedures to attempt to correct this - are miserable.
So, we've gone from morbid obesity to flaccid protuberances.
Don't you just love thread drift?
If someone has hiked sections of the AT for 14 years and is rather active in outdoor sports, is well equipped, and knows their physical comforts and limits ... but is still overweight *not as bad as this guy* Is it a bad idea to start off a thru hiker to get into shape?
how overweight is 'not as bad as this guy'?..lbs, baby, i'm talking lbs.
lots of people start off overweight, but starting a thru hike to get into shape doesn't sound smart...
kinda like running a marathon so you can take up jogging...
You were the Mafman? I followed that Trail Journal in 2002. SHe made you sound so cool. My vision of you was standing on that ridge in a thunderstorm holding your poles high after a near lightning strike and yelling, "YEE HA!"
What the hell happened to you?
When you got tired, you rested, then went on. You didn't call for a rescue party to carry you to a motel.
At least in her journal.
Did Jan make all the stuff up about you?
I am Mafman. :>)) If you read the journal, it was a little different than the book. Jan didn't lie anywhere in the book or her journal. She left some things out of the journal so my family, who were following our progress in her journal, would not worry. I am from Florida. There is more lightning strikes here than anywhere else in the world I believe. It kinda makes ya feel alive when ya survive. I like to think I am cooler than she makes me sound. I do tend to enjoy myself.
