Hey Brick, nice of you to put in a plug for your old
marathoner pal goforth, but why make Tim Meyers look like
a loser for comparison? He's on the trail right now where he
can't defend himself. If he's having a hard time like you
said he doesn't need the extra embarassment to
know you were telling everybody about his mistakes and
crappy emotional state.
Isn't there a kinder way of asking people to send him
goodwill thoughts? I saw you couldn't resist taking a
swipe at your old nemesis Jardine and weekend hikers too.:(
Some of us have jobs that make it hard for us to hike long
trips all the time, but at least we hike.
Why don't we wish sucess to all the Thruhikers in
public and leave the digs and condescending for private? I
tried to send this to your address but it bounced.
