    Cool For fun " What should you really be stressing about"

    Reading some of the questions being asked and seeing some of the things people are stressing out about, this post is for a bit of fun.

    What should perspective thru hikers really be stressing out about?

    My contributions

    1. "Where is the next cold beer coming from" ? While others build a spreadsheet of where the post offices, outfitters etc are I plan to have a spreadsheet of all the best watering holes.

    2. How do a appear to not be ogling the half naked male/female in the shelter, while watching their every move and jingle? My first thought was mirrored sunnies, but that could be creepy especially at night, so I've opted for a little periscope that will poke up half way down my sleeping bag!

    Please add your own SERIOUS worries.

    1. Why don't I like beer?

    2. Why do I NEVER see half-nekkid people at a shelter? Oh - I don't stay at them. Never mind.

    Nope. No worries. Just waiting.

    Thruhikers really need to be careful walking into town. Maybe cut through the woods and avoid the back roads even. Best spot is probably near a pharmacy to get supplies. 'Cause a thruhiker walking into town is like the Beatles landing at JFK and with all those thruhiker groupies a thru needs to be careful!

    My biggest concern, after reading journals, is how many people split hotel/motel rooms with members of the opposite sex.

    I've been told that I'm better looking then the stud in the photo hqdefault.jpg

    I have a body that a hairy, unwashed bikie would be proud of and it's well known that the sing song, melodious aussie accent is irresistible to the foreigners.

    How do I tell people that I can't share with them as the temptation for them would be too great?
