And does she say "Bless your heart", carry this box....


For all the yankees on the list, that means shut up and carry this

>Hopeful, your meeting with Earl Shaffer surely happened at Hot Springs at the very first Trail Fest and the first time I met you and >Plodder in person. That's when I got my book signed by Earl Shaffer too. I remember that line, and Earl leading the hiker parade.

That's right! It was the first time we met and I recall it was Mrs. Hopeful's first time to meet the hiker community. Boy, do I remember. I was loading my truck with stuff Mrs Hopeful wanted to bring. Each time I put a box or bag in the truck I'd go back in the house only to find another! Says I to her, "What's all this?" Says she to me, "It's the stuff we need, here's another box." 
Well, I never stop being amazed at the exceptional ability of my dear wife. Not only is she so wonderfully supportive of my hiking habit, but she adds whole new dimensions. Says me to her, "Sweetheart, (I always call her that when I'm fix'n to say something that might get me in trouble) Sweetheart," says I, "you are so inventive. You done added a whole new twist to 'leave no trace' camping. By the time I finally get the truck loaded, nobody will ever be able to tell we used to live in Harrison, Tennessee!"
