Reality - it's real.

Here is the story Peter texted me from his iPhone. He says it is hard to type on it and so I have fixed up the typos. I have also decided to change the name of the (apparently) guilty person, just to be on the safe side.

"A guy called Ray came hiking into Hawk shelter after us. He was 27 and a machine, having hiked in one day what took us two. Funny, gregarious, a real charmer. He talks to these two women who each had been married for 30 years, Stitch and Up Early, and they thought he was the cat's meow. We all had breakfast at the picnic table next morning. At noon Adam and I caught up to Stitch and UE at Woody Gap just as the Lumpkin County Sheriff's car was pulling away ... with Ray!  Apparently, he had sent drugs to the Hiker Hostel to be delivered to Woody Gap but an under cover police officer brought them instead. When he admitted the box was his, he was cuffed and hauled off to jail. So he is off the trail but we don't know for how long. Stitch and UE were a little shocked because he was such a nice guy. They are both hiking because they say their husbands owe them this trip."

My comment is about the other dope-smokers that Gronk has run into along the trail. They do tend to be young too. I wonder why you would go into the wilderness to commune with Nature and then befuddle your brain? You can stay home and do that. When you are out in the woods, becoming more your true self, realizing the glory of reality, why would you want to dope up your brain? Reality is it. That's all there is and it is wonderful.
