    Just a question, but do all people have as much trouble putting one foot in front of the other like she did in the first 10 minutes? I'm not trying to make myself sound like the worlds greatest hiker, but I've never had a look of misery, like hers, on my face even at the times when I was most tired. But I've lost about 65 pounds, and I feel at my peak when it burns to breathe basically. I guess it's a pain-for-pleasure sorta thing, or even a high from knowing impossible is possible. It's very hard to put into words, but I love it.

    Perhaps The actress was just over-acting and atempting to be dramatic, but I thought it was silly and lousy.
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.

    I think I would if I was carrying a pack that weighed 50% of my body weight. I can't believe how much she was carrying, even after she got rid of some stuff!

    Yikes!

    I enjoyed the tension filled scenes with her disapproving parents.
    What a huge first aid kit!!!!
    If I had to be in a movie ... the location of this one would be nice but craft services would be all Snicker, peanut butter, gorp, mac n' cheese and ramen.
    Hey ... I could over-act "Slack-Pack" any time!

    Take all the video's Shug has posted and throw in all the other vids that pop up on youtube when you search for hammocks, backpacking, etc and edit them all together to make some sense of continuity and it would probably be more real and entertaining than any of the professional attempts listed. ...ok maybe not more real..but certainly entertaining!
