Thread: Hooking up...

  1. #1

    Default Hooking up...

    Perhaps I should put this in the humor section, but my girlfriend seems to think that I will have lots of temptation to hook up with ladies on the trail. Somehow, I don't think she understands the effect of multiple 20 mile days and no showers on the libdo. Lol.

    Alligator, are you in the market for a job? We could use a forward-minded hiker with an eye for detail such as yourself. PM me your resume.

    I'd want stock options and a quiet little cubicle where I can sit in my PJ's and eat Doritos like my two favorite tag team wrestlers.

    Never mind the stink, et al. Just look at the M/F ratio. Your wife will be pleased.

    What about the thru-hiker groupies that wait at road crossings and trail towns. Some of them even travel in buses north to stay with the flow of hikers.

    Hiker groupies. Another pleasant fantasy brought to you from the mind of Bill Bryson.

    I think that I am the only thru-hiker to hook up on the trail. The key is to mail your sleeping bag ahead, have the temperature drop to 20 degrees and find a wiling section hiker that you can yogi into sharing her sleeping bag. I have pictures too!

    HMMM. I suspect aaron has a vivid imagination. Groupies were rather scarce in 1993 and in all the trail towns I've visited since. As an observer and sometime chronicler of the trail scene, I have yet to see any buses filled with women seeking hookups with through hikers in Oquoccic, Rangeley, Stratton, Caratunk or Monson -- or even Abol Bridge, for that matter.

    and most important measure of compatability in any relationship:
    - tarlin or doyle.
