First you'd think it's like the scrawling on a boys tree house, "no girls!" Or does it mean we`re going to do some scary stuff and you better Man up. Is it because Josh is The Man for putting such a great trip together or did he just need people to man the trip? I think they are all correct and I'd also like to express intensity, Man! What a trip!
I was the new guy on the trip with little idea about whats going to happen but I know I'm not going to puss out of anything. I don't quit easily and if the Man in trip meant anything to me, it's Man Up and show that I earned a place on the trip.
|The Caribbean is nice this time of year|
|I like to think of these as Norwegian Jellyfish|
|Any time you have gear, you have repairs.|
|Camp 1 - First morning|
|A roomy 2-man tent and -20 bag.|
|I saw this Gnome. That's good luck.|
|He wasn't to happy to be left behind.|
|Narrow trails gorged with snow are so peacefull|
|We are trying to follow a creek but it's a slog and it gets dark soon...|
|When I die, if I can look out from a photo, this is it.|
[Insert long hard snowshoe to a location off the map]
|Ride / Snowshoe / remote camp is a lot of gear, uffta.|
Tacos and a night out on the beach
|When I leave this place, it's all done.|
|The van grew horns. Toro!|
If we started out wondering what the man in Man Trip meant you probably know where this is going. You can decide for yourself based on the pictures if it meant anything at all. I feel stronger for advancing my winter camping skills, extending my north woods knowledge and testing my fortitude. If I have to quantify it, I say, man evolves because of his strengths but people die for lack of challenges. The Man Trip is seeing how far you can mentally hitchhike before you have to develop stronger skills or be left behind.
