BTW, the center hiker can switch out with the other two 'safeties' if they like.
So Beeman, basically what your saying is, your considering trying out the Nude Hikers Day Marathon? Oh boy.....when is your plans for your next thru? That way I can hope to avoid you!!

Beeman,

So let me understand - in your trio you have a drag hiker and a nude hiker. How is the third hiker dressing? LOL

You are missing the point, with outriders you will never be exposed to a naked hiker if you don't want to be. OTOH, you can also prepare your camera if you are so inclined (great blackmail material)

Will there be a demonstation of all of this at the RUCK Beeman? Oh that's just great.... just what we need another AT Video......

"Appalachian Expressions, the Exposed Trail"...or should I say tail.

I always knew they did things a little different in the Lone Star state.

"Cool and rational," well SD, please give my teenagers a talking-to when you meet them this summer! Those aren't words I hear applied to me too terribly often around here!

But hey... I think Beeman's idea has a ton of potential! Nobody has to see anything they're not prepared for, everybody has fun and like you say, blackmail material for decades. Or perhaps a photographic record to carry into the middle and older years, to sigh over what once was.

Oh but gosh please DO at all costs avoid the Girl Scouts! I have enough trouble convincing these gals to get out there! Now their moms on the other hand...

I would like to make the following statement for the record.

I am almost positive I am not offering to do the nude hiking. (Unless it is a night hike)

Beeman,

Whisperingwind,

We could always add it to a list of activities for the TP Ruck next year.

Beeman and any others who think they can out do him can model their attire and the rest of us shy folks will score the competitors.

It will be forever known as the "Beeman in Drag" competition
