We had 5 1/2 inches of snow when I got up yesterday, went for a 12 mile walk with a 32 lb backpack. Today I will take it easy and walk just 2 miles.
were zombies chasing you ?
Just kidding , congrats on getting out and enjoying the SC weather . I walked 12 miles once ,,,, bike was broke down in middle of nowhere and I " thought " I knew a short cut back to truck . Ah the dirt bike days
oh and I had 33 lbs of anger once I figured out I was going to either swim or straddle a dead tree to cross stream . BTW it was first weekend of May and freaking water was just above ice temp ,,,maybe
Now for the rest of the story .........
My little brain decided the dead tree was a good idea . Exactly to the millimeter I was half way and tree broke . Into the water I went ( BTW I can't swim) and it was colder than I ever want to feel again. Good news was it was 50degrees out and sunny . I was soaked , every inch of me . I got out alive ( barely ) and crawled to dry land . Than shivering I walked in a bee line to noise I could here just over a little knoll . Thank goodness some dudes were wilderness camping and had my size clothes . Went into their tent and changed into dry clothes as they hung my clothes on make shift lines close to fire . I timidly asked them where bla bla bla was so I could get my bearings ...
I was 90 degrees away from direction I thought I was walking .........Short cut
not so much . They had ATV's and said they would take me to to my truck and help me load broke yz250 up. After a nice convesation and I helped tweak a Yamaha banshee carb up thye took me back to truck and I told them I got it palying yz up. I came back next day with steaks for their wood fired grill and yz again and we went riding all day . Nothung like steak and eggs for breakfast to make life long frinds . 3 out of the 4 I am still email freinds with and see one every once and a great while in person now .
