Gut Rumbles

i'm gonna die

The soreness is setting in seriously now.

I am too old for this shit.

I may need help to get out of bed in the morning. The knife cut on my finger probably could use a couple of stitches, but my back is going to require a massage and massive amounts of Vicodin before I recover. I feel as if I have been stretched on a rack.

I went camping with two friends I've known since high school. One was my college roommate and the other was a long-time guitar-playing partner. We're in our early 50s now, after being friends for more than 30 years, and we still behave like teenagers when we get together and start drinking brown liquor in the woods. Doing that crazy shit hurts a lot worse now than it once did.

I really enjoyed the trip, but it may be the last one I ever take. That pack is heavier than I remember it being, and the trail is a lot steeper, too. I get tired sooner than I used to. And when I get sore, I stay sore for days anymore.

If I ever do that again, I'll hire a helicopter pilot to ferry me in and out. Fuck that hiking.

I am not a teenager anymore.

You'd best put the link # somewhere easy to find so you can look this post up real quick the next time someone suggests you old farts try something like this again.

"I'm growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead..."
--"Growing Older (But Not Up)", Jimmy Buffett

We don't get older - we get BOLDER!!

NNNNOOOOO!

NOT "fuck the hiking"--fuck the PACK. You and I are the same age (give or take) and I gave up carrying a pack a couple of years ago. Now I walk with llamas. Let THEM carry the pack. Now when I go to the Tetons or the Wind River Mtns, I'm the old fart on foot. The other old farts I see have their guts hanging over a saddle. (That hurts even thinking about it.)

I'm gonna hike until I die. If I croak up there, they'll either have to leave me behind (fine by me) or cut me in half to keep from overloading the llamas.

Repeat after me: One llama for supplies, one llama for booze . . .

You're not a teenager anymore? Obviously.

Quitcher bitchen, old man! You had fun and you should do it more often.

Yet another age-obsessed blog!!! Several today. The weekend must have been strenuous to everybody! Glad you didn't die, Acidman. And think about that llama idea. Sounds like a good one.

Posted by: Indigo on May 27, 2003 08:14 AM

Well, it wasn't that strenuous for me! Hell, I hiked back up to the car for beer and ice replenishment the second day. (It's never too far to hike for booze.) It's not about age - it's about attitude. (altitude also, sometimes.) The A-man is just a winer, er, whiner. Also, a malcontent, a discontent and an adult content. (Hey, he said it, not me!)

Gah. That makes me feel real good about accepting an invitation to go hunting in Wyoming this fall.

The only thing in my favor is that because of gout, I don't drink liquor anymore.

I'd better start getting a little more in shape, starting... tomorrow.

Now... where were those potato chips?

Posted by: Kim du Toit on May 27, 2003 01:18 PM

Wha'cha gonna hunt, Kim?

A few years back I drove through Wyoming in mid-September. I coulda stocked up on antelope for years if the Highway Patrol wouldn't have put me away for hunting from a moving vehicle.

And then there's that whole "How am I gonna get across Canada (from Alaska) with a gun?" thing...

Here is the story: BlackJack originated in French casinos around 1700 where it was called "vingt-et-un" ("twenty-and-one") and has been played in the U.S. since the 1800's. Online BlackJack is named as such because if a player got a Black Jack of Spades and internet black jack an Ace of Spades as the first two cards (Spade being the color jack black of course), the player was additionally remunerated. http://www.888-blackjack.com/
