Katahdin - Popeye 2000

It is for certain that every Gonzo trip is a true adventure. Baxter State Park did not let us down. Hike does not describe the wonderful climbs and rock hopping we undertook, it was as far form a hike as a swimming pool swim is from a marathon open ocean swim. Often I forget and am not always prepared for the degree of difficulty of things we do, and there is always a degree of difficulty, it is just that different adventures are more difficult for different people.

Being fit is my thing but this trip has helped me overcome a lifelong fear of heights and Stalker was the man who helped me through the weekend. If he thinks I dont sweat, think again, this was a major accomplishment for me and without Stalkers help I could have failed. You cant fake fitness..oh and you cant cover up your fear of heights.
