Comments
Comments: A delightful little ass kicker. Pounds you up for awhile, then lets up, then really pounds you severely. Which aligns perfectly with the way an old man's body gradually loosens up, and gets stronger on the second half. Expect rough footing due to rocks, roots and steepness. And then outstanding views.
Let me give Ken MacGray a plug here. I just got his 52WAV book and I'd recommend it because it assumes rightfully that you're a peakbagger, and it immediately tells you what a peakbagger needs to know to bag these peaks.
Nicely done, Ken.
I may have to take a couple days off to heal up my shoulders. My pack straps rubbed all the freckles right off my shoulders, and replaced them with red and blue raspberries. Didn't Ted Nugent have a song about that? Pack strap fever, dunt dunt dah.. pack strap fever dunt dunt dunt dah.
