You said ANY 30 year old woman right?

OK, this could be fun so we got how many years to collect on this bet?

I could probably get on the phone to an old friend of mine and have him get a hold of some woman your age or close that could walk you into the ground right now.

This from a pansy who won't go for a hike because he'll hurt himself.

An 8 year-old girl could probably outhike him with as much gear as he has -- NONE.

I don't think so MELVIN -- you're fifty-two and over the hill. All of those years you spent in prison, aged you more than three to one.

I would be big bucks that RIKA could do it now.

RIKA can already out-draw you and out-shoot you. RIKA's splits are down to .19 too.

That proves it, you lose MELVIN, we win.

This is a bet in which GK could participate without getting into legal trouble.

This is a bet he's turned down on at least three occasions. He always comes up with something. If it's not hiding behind his parole, it's because he (supposedly in "Olympic class shape" from the Abs of Steel workout) is afraid he's twist an ankle or turn a knee.

I've seen middle school girls come home with backpacks heavier than the one Melvin carries. Guess old Mel has bad knees because people cut him off at that point so much.

When I was the Search and Rescue first responder team leader, there was a gal on my team that was 41 had three kids, a full time job. She was one of the toughest human beings I ever met.
A buddy from the USMC (we have known each other since childhood and served together various places, we both got out about the same time and came "home".) was also on the team. We where in a 4th Marines Force Recon unit at the time and both rather fit, we both ran marathons at the time and where on a NG Biathalon team (as well as both of us went to Ranger school in our late twenties to get a Recon MOS rating for the reserve unit). They let us on the Biatholon team because there wern't enough NG guys that wanted to do it and we where also on the X-country, winter Search and Rescue team as well.

Anyhow, this gal was tireless and tough as nails, as first responders we often headed into the back country at night and we took alot of pride in finding our folks before daylight. She was good for a 6mph pace at 9k to 10k elevation going up and down hills or whatever and she was a Paramedic carrying a heavy med pack!

JD is so stupid about the kind of folks out there, this gal was 10X the backcountry traveler JD will ever be.

Anytime JD you want to prove how good you are in the backcountry you just let me know. We could do a quaint little 100 miler or something longer. Your walknig around town with a pack don't mean [email protected] to me, you are all mouth.

Teuf,
