“Sounds like a Bigfoot sighting to me.”
“ok dayhiker, so he is a phantom of the woods....
but how did they know it was bacpac?
anyone can say they are him, not sure why anyone would but you understand what i am saying right?”
“Hey, we all mess up now and then. I did drink too much one time while backpacking with some rowdy friends and we still had lots of miles to crank the next day and, well, NEVER AGAIN! Strenuous hiking with a hangover EL SUCKOS! All my rowdy friends have settled down.”
“bbw has mentioned making it to the TH. He and I have discussed it on this board. Rabbitman compared who he saw to an online pic. I saw the pic Rabbitman took (he promised not to post and hasn't) and it was the same person I've seen an image on here. It was no doubt him. He'll probably post and corroborate what I'm saying.
Is that enough proof?
We didn't get a lock of his hair for DNA testing.

“Hey, I was totally sober during my Bigfoot experience. But I'll admit, sometimes after a few swigs my cigar looks like a craft with red flickering lights on the end.”
“well ok day sorry I asked
“It's really embarrassing when someone takes away your car keys. And you're 5 miles in.”
“It's really embarrasing when you get in your tent and the person in there wakes up to your alcohol stench and states the fact that you stink of alcohol and then you get paranoid because it's your first trip into grizzly country and you've seen enough bears up close to know that you never want to see a grizzly like that and your worried the alcohol will attract grizzlies so you step outside and chain smoke hoping you'll stink of something other than alcohol.......while wondering who exactly that person in your tent was.
But you didn't drink enough to pass out.”
“I don't drink while backpacking. However, I do enjoy a brew after exiting the trail. Guinness is what I ask for. What I end up getting may be far from that. If Guinness isn't available, than i ask for the regional specialty. I've learned, don't eat more than one cherry!”
If I had a nickel for every time that happened...”
“this might have already been posted but did you hear about the guy who died the other day when his wife gave him an enema of too much alcohol? apparently he hadn't been able to drink b/c of a throat condition so he injected it up his arse. the article made it sound like it was common practice to him. they said his wife was trying to kill him and shot him up w/ so much that his bac went to .43”
“When I hike with with old friends we take a few liters of Merlot to sip on while cooking dinner and playing hearts.Plus a beer with our food both before and after hiking, if there is a local eating house. That seems to be the only time I ever drink, except for a few beers a month at home.(Although I drank 2 beers last night at our neighbors Super Bowl party.) Years ago we used to drink Wild Turkey shots during card games, "smooth as barbed wire". I guess I'm getting old.”
