So a lot of people probably don't know this, but in my non-cigar life, I am the Scoutmaster for my Boy Scout Troop...in order to help the boys earn the hiking merit badge, they had to complete a one day, 20 mile hike...so today we started at 7am and finished our 23 miles at 5:30pm...10 hours of hiking in the california foothills...5258 calories later my almost 40 year old butt is officially kicked! I can scratch this off my bucket list...20 miles before 40th BD (may 2)
I don't think I'll ever do this again!
Just one little Smurf against the world....I feel sorry for you World! BOOM, suckas!
WTG from a former Scout. Props to you because 20 years later I still have fond memories of my Scoutmasters and I think it is a good program for the boys. I also remember doing a two day hike threw the Yosemite Valley and being very proud that I managed to stick it out. Congrats bro.
I was a den leader for five years, and have moved on to "mom and committee" status so there aren't many outings in my dance card anymore, but I tell you what... I really got a taste for cigars in the smoking hut at camp every night after Wood Badge :-)
Kudos for keeping up with the boys! My son has his 20 miler left to go!
