Lessons learned: one state down

2011 March 19
  1. We’re not 21
  2. With the correct combination of drugs we can make only one thing hurt at a time. See #1 above
  3. It only takes one day on the trail to smell like a horse barn.
  4. I could be the leg double for Russell Crowe in his next Gladiator film. So could Liz.
  5. You can always tell the day hikers. They always smell like fabric softener. See #3 above.
  6. John can shave 30 minutes off his time if there’s a burger waiting for him. 45 if it has bacon.
  7. Liz learned John will leave her in the dust for a good bacon cheeseburger.
  8. Camp stoves are for sissies. Crunchy rice tastes just as good. We’re done cooking for a bit.
  9. If more people treated folks like thru-hikers and hostel owners do, this world would be in much better shape.
  10. If forced to choose, snow is a much better hiking companion than rain. You can put more clothes on to get warm; you can’t put more clothes on the get dry.
  11. Cowbell is to music what switchbacks are to mountains. You can always use more.
  12. North Carolina got off to a rough start, but as of now NC Trails > GA Trails hands down.
