So.....update on the Backpacker Magazine Tough Guy Challenge Win.....
Got all my gear today.......box-load of all kind of wearable gear.
Maybe I am not so tough as I passed on the Mt. Rainier trip. Just won't work for me. All the dates are during my busy summer schedule. My work as a comedy juggler is "feast or famine". Had one weekend I could do in September but that was my least favorite month to go....less snow....and I am all give out after a summer of doing three shows a day at State and County Fairs all summer...sometimes 12 days in a row and then to another. Honestly.....I am exhausted.
On top of that...I would have to miss my yearly 9 night trip with Hickery)))))
Going on the Mt. Rainier trip with a bunch of strangers three or four to a TENT and being the old man AND NOT GETTING TO SLEEP IN MY HAMMOCK just made it not as appealing as a Linville Gorge Trip....at least to me.
Tough.....well that is subjective. I am a Backpacker. Alpine stuff can wait until I can do it with friends.
Backpacker Mag and the IGM Guides were cool. Maybe pass it to second placer.
I was just happy my video won. They are doing a Winners Spread in the May Issue and have been interviewing me and the 2nd and 3rd placers. Cool.
So....have a look at the gear I won. Prepare to drool>>>>>>>
ADDED UP.....$1154 VALUE

The Cirque pants and jacket are appropriate the right brand for you!
...and you need another couple of watch caps!
Nice gear! You done good!

Cool Shug congrats!!!!!
A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
Congratulations Shug on being the world's best dressed hiker!
Don't blame you for choosing swinging in a hammock in the Gorge over being couped up in a tent on Ranier!

Congrats Shug! Nice haul. Sorry that I won't get to see your trip though.
Well I read that and dang if I didn't get a lump in my throat reading your priorities pal. Glad you got all that neat gear though ... you be styling in the woods now for sure!
You da man Shug-row!
WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.
