    If I had a quarter for everytime I saw that silly blue pad of happiness, I'd buy another hammock.

    No worries about it getting cut short, just another bump in the road. I'm gonna pound it out in sections on the weekends over the course of the summer and now I'll be able to take Genuine Draft with me, which will be nice. My own fault; I didn't train like I should have and I pushed too hard too quick. Lesson learned...again. Maybe it'll stick around a little longer this time, if not, oh well.

    As has so often been the case with me the last few years, the spirit has been willing but the flesh is weak! Sorry to hear it Cannibal, you'll get 'er done next time! So what did Y'all end up doing, car camping? That can be loads of fun too! Especially in a glorious spot!

    Coffee, how did the elevation treat you?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks for asking, Ask Cannibal how the back side of me looked going up hill.

    I was fine. The day in Denver helped. I spent a day hiking up a 14'er and in Rocky Mountain NP. It was a good time.

    Yep, spent most of my time looking at Coffee's backside on the ups. Course, it helps that his legs are as long as circus stilts.

    He did great, I was very surprised. I, on the other hand, did terrible. Didn't feel it the second day, then the knee started going on the third. The fourth day was a joke. Coffee whooped me to be sure! And, that's with his 75 lb bag of candy in his pack. The rafting trip I would call a draw, but he did get scolded by the guide once. I was a good boy.

    You say scolded I say,.......

    I had a good time and got to see and do a lot that I wouldn't got to any other way. Not the trip we had planned, but a good vaca. Now back in the grind putting in some hours of OT.

    While on the subject of hammocking on the CT anyone tried the Grand Enchantment Trail from AZ to NM? w/a hammock? Or parts of it? Thanks.
