Save your energy on trying to fake it, and just climb Everest instead

I win either way

Try Lord Lucan

Or the lead singer of the Manic Street Preachers

How many would come, do you think, if you organise one? I wouldn't hold my breath in anticipation.

Because it's much safer for humans to stay in valleys. laugh

I'm just waiting for them to put in an elevator.




My style of camping involves carrying the clothes on my back, a rain pancho and pancho liner blanket, a hammock, some salt and spices, a knife, and a few sources of fire.

I love camping in a tropical paradise, where I can find 100 mangos, get naked, and eat them in a stream, then pull 100 prawns out of the stream, put em on a grill, and eat them too.

I love camping where there's fresh spring water, wild figs, pigs, goats, coconuts, taro, breadfruit, bananas, etc., etc, and waterfalls to shower in.

To me, the perfect camping destination is a place where I can lay around in a hammock all year.

Hiking to a place where I'd need to pack a 4 season tent, food, water, fuel, oxygen tanks, plus 30 pounds of down clothing and bedding, and have to leave as soon as I get there...

That's just not me.

You are very "down to earth" type, or?

I've been training, but not for "it", I've been training for far too long and I've missed my chance. But I hope, it's not the case for you :)

Neither did I, until I've read Krakauer's "Into thin air". And after reading it, I still didn't understand the charm... perhaps, there wasn't any.

Nonetheless, I suddenly discovered in my soul a kind of a drift... or a question that I's asking myself: "Why didn't you climb Everest yet?" and there was no given answer. That I've missed my chance by a huge margin is true, but it is not the point in the context.

Would I dare given the chance -- that's the question. And I'd like to know that the answer is: "Yes".

And I'm looking for the like-minded. No matter what :)
