I want to tell you about a couple of my favs you posted.
The horrible looking concoction that David is about to
eat, is a bizarre mixture of peanut butter, M&M's,
and some other things (cereal I believe it was) on a tortilla!
I thought I eat about anything, and I love peanut butter
more than most people, but I could hardly even stand watching
him eat this. My wife wants to go hiking him just so I
can prove to her he really did eat this! (Dave, you've
got to bring this on our upcoming outing and flaunt it
right in front of Julia!) Of course, it was probably super
efficient trail food. One of my other favs is David stripping
off some wet socks and stuff. I was doing the same thing
because we had bushwacked down a steep slope for a while.
Anyway, about the time I was snapping that shot, I was
expecting some comment like "you know Bob, this is
fun and all but I don't think I'll be following you around
in the mountains off-trail on any more trips..."
Not only did he not say it, but I could tell from his
smile that he enjoyed the thrill of the bushwack just
as much as I did. You may be able to detect just the slightest
smirk which I would speculate to mean "good grief
that was bad, cold, wet, wet socks, but it sure beats
hiking 110 degrees in the Texas desert under the blazing
sun any day".
