    I have learned to find a balance between hike-your-own-hike and smart communication. Shug is the more experienced in the piney woods. However, he is very good at soliciting my input with all of our decisions. I do very much appreciate how lucky I am to hike with such a learned fool in Shug. Nothing worse than being pissed off or on, in the piney woods. An over bearing, overeducated or undereducated trail know-it-all can really put a damper on your trail wonder. Discuss, pre-trek, what your bugout plans are in case of an emergency. Shug knows my wishes and I know his. We have discussed various emergency scenarios and worked out a plan to deal with these situations. Most important, always keep an eye out for each other... and with me, it is literally one eye. This will be better explained in the part two video.

    Fully enjoyed the adventure, and looking forward to part 2

    Happy Birthday Wander'n Fool

    Your notes above very well capture the things I have learned also.

    It takes a lot of calories to keep up high function, in hard conditions.

    The best companions are hard to find, best hang on to the good ones

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    Actually, Shug used you as a prime example of someone he respects, who totally understands and properly maintains calorie intake on the trail.

    This is something everyone needs to read and follow. Balance is important out there and being smart and sharing plans can be the difference between a great trip and a bad one.

    It's great to hear/see that you two had fun out there on your big day. That trail is a great place for two friends to get soaked, cold and walk that dreadful lake walk. Man, I miss that trail! Thanks for letting us tag along.

    Happy 50th! If I ever get to meet you I'll bring you a b-day Kit Kat.

    The lake walk was like walking into a dream! Tough walking on the sinky rocks.
    It was good to have company on this trip.
