What's a Gronk?

Gronk was a character in a 60's TV show called, It's About Time, played by Joe E. Ross.  It was a fish-out-of-water sitcom where two astronauts travel back in time and must live with caveman Gronk and his family.  It didn't last long, but as a 10 year old, I remember Gronk, a bit of a dimwitted but nice guy, always saying, Ooh! Ooh!, when he finally clued in to what everyone else seemed to already know.

I've recently become interested in eating low carb and Paleo, and then found Mark Sisson's "primal living in a modern world" site and wondered if it would be possible to hike the A.T. eating in a primal or paleo manner instead of living almost exclusively on simple carbs and junk food like most hikers.

I had been pondering a "trail name" and have read it's better to give yourself one before you hit the trail as you never know what your fellow hikers will saddle you with.  And so Gronk was born.
