“I just finalized plans to visit The Adventurists in August! Can't wait to hike the rockies for the first time. :)
Now this flatlander has to work on getting better cardio fitness, so I don't sputter out and die on the trails.
“What the hell? Did you lose the invite I tossed out there to come see some REAL mountains? Bastard.”
“Have fun! Enjoy that Rocky Mountain High.”
“Hey Amy...you mean to tell me you are staying with that weirdo John??? Well, at least the Mrs is sane. lol
When in August are you coming out? I'd love to come up and hike with yall!”
“Look who's calling who a weirdooooooo!”
“Nobody hikes with Adventurist. They hike behind him.”
“LOL...I'll take that as a complement!”
“cause his legs are a mile long!”
“Have a good one, Amy.
“Amy, you are going to LOVE Colorado! I assume you already know the Adventurists, otherwise known as The Very Fast Hikers :-) Hopefully they will have mercy on your breathless sole when you are hiking at altitude.”
“HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa ... Adventurist ... mercy ... HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa
That's a good one!”
“Nah, I don't know them, but I need someone to glom off of while I am in the Rocky Mountain state.
“They have altitude in Colorado????”
“nah, we just tell everyone back east that to skeer them off.
The place is gettin full!
“You should definately take a wind jacket from what I know of the mountains there. You must also take your sled as you know for sure that there will not be any snow on the trail
Have a great time!”
“Don't worry precision... we'll "help" AmyG with her gear! MOO HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!
AmyG: Do you seriously think I'll need to carry an inflatable raft and pump...they are awfully heavy.
Adventurists: Yes, everyone is required to carry one at all times in case all the snowfields melt at once.
“oh...so funny. ha. ha. ha.
I am sure the snowfields melting all at once IS a possibility if you make that split pea soup again!!!
“Ohhhhhhh...sooooooo little time and so much to do!”
You 'ol slutcake!
Girl, girl, girl...
The first TTer what I ever met.
"Now this flatlander has to work on getting better cardio fitness, so I don't sputter out and die on the trails."
Say waa? You cut yer teeth on the trails of PA - "where hiking boots go to die", and yer talking skeertities about the Rox?
14er my eye.
Yeah, and the trailheads are 10ers...
The trails can accomodate horses for crying out loud; they're relative superhighways. They rise steadily up creek drainages, and switchback at the slightest sign of AT type ascents. After crossing a pass, they continue down another drainage at predictably easy gradiants. Granted, the final push up a pass can be a sled slammer, but you've been there times a'plenty.
Get acclimatized and you'll be fine.
Good luck, dear, and enjoy the majesty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains - one of Americas greatest treasures!”
“Hey yeah......the mountains in the east are the beast!!
“Gojo!!! I have missed you, sweetie! :)
So, you guys are telling me that I should ignore all of the stories I've been hearing about death and dismemberment at altitude? So, what you are realllly saying is that Adventurist is a pu$$y?
“It sounds like it to me AmyG. =D
Have a great trip! If Birch and I could do it smoking a pack a day you'll have no problems.”
“I think its true what they say about the Feenamint guy.
“Dang, Geo and woodzie beat me to making the comment about the Adventurists' hiking pace. They're hiking machines. Only thing more physically challenging than hiking with them is when Roam Around joins the group and then Roam and John battle it out for uber-hiker status. :)
You've picked a great guide, AmyG. Maybe the Colorado TTers can get together for a drink or ten.”
“Well, Roam has definitely got me beat! That goes to show the benefits of running.
And just you wait Miss AmyG...... I'll take the direct route right up those mountains.”
“None of that sissy switchback crap, huh?”
“What's a switchback?”
“Maybe its got something to do with brokeback and switch-hittin'.”
“So why's this guy bringin up homosexuality in the middle of this thread?
“Just playin' with the words, pal.
And bustin' on the boys.
A lumbering zombie probably couldn't handle switchin' back or forth.”
“sure. i believe you.
homophobes often are, as you say, "switch-hittin" themselves.
it's all good "pal".”
“People are strange... when they're a stranger!”
“I'm stranger than you, Feenamint!!
Roam is a real badass mountain-humper these days, huh?”
“You should see Roam flyyyy. He's in super-duper cardio shape. That EddieS guy isn't a slouch either.”
“Are we there yet?”
“I'm already here, which to you would be 'there'
But I really hafta go pee now, so I'm gonna go 'here'.”
“Jeeze, right at the computer?
I'll have to keep AmyG away from you. She isn't used to strange people like you. All the people in her head seem normal to her.”
“That's true...I am normal...it's the rest of you people I love so much who are freakeeeee!
“Hey! You said you like it freaky!”
“7 weeks to go....”
“Where are you guys going in Colo? I'm going to Montrose CO over the 4th of July weekend, but will be mostly visiting my Mom. From Montrose we visit Colo National Monument, Grand Mesa, Ouray, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The San Jauns are always beckoning for a backpack, but we never have time to get up there.”
Well we live in Loveland, CO. Not sure what we are doing for July 4th yet.
AmyG is coming out in August..”
“6 1/2 more weeks!!! >:D”
“You live in Loveland? Didn't you used to live in Tennesse or thereabouts? Am I thinking of someone else? Colorado has some great places.”
“I used to live in Pennsylvania. I was looking at Idaho for a bit...even stopped at your house. :-)”
“i'm the one who used to live in tennessee bob. now im in denver, however, not for long. Never been to Idaho.”
“Then you are missing the GOOOOOD TIMES!
Wyodaho is the BOM!
