Trail Name: Mongo
Homecourt: West Milford, NJ
Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury I submit my qualifications:
First and above all else I never leave home without my single malt. Judging from my geographic location, its time to open a northeast chapter of the Brotherhood.
Ive hiked the Big Ditch north to south rim with a side trip to Clear Creek. Spent a long week on the Teton Crest Trail emerging from Paint Brush Canyon. Only to be told by our taxi driver that we smelled a bit gamey. Whats he talking about, I didnt smell a thing! Ive hiked from Many Glacier Lodge to Kintla Lake through Glacier Nat. Pk. and in 09 spent 8 days in Yosemites backcountry.
But enough about the parks. Ive been section hiking the A.T. for way to long and may finish it before I am to old to lug my large flask of Scotch. While day hiking in Zion I was asked by a young lad if I was a real pirate! To which I of course I replied, ARRRR.
And in a nod to Mr. Howe, Ive walked my dogs on cold winter, northern N.J. nights, in my P.J.s, with almost, pretty much, mostly no shrinkage.
Sorry ladies, I had to go there.
By the way any outfit that has trail chicks is my kind of outfit. And so I end this application and await your ruling.
Yours in jest,
Mongo aka Mark
