lol... I'm working on it. But I think I'll be able to hold my own.
I said the same thing.....Dont take it for granted. It will probably be the hardest thing you have ever done. When the hounds are chasing there is no time for breaks. GET IN SHAPE!!!!!!!

yea i said i wasn't gong to scratch mine either now it is scratched and ya can't tell what color it is thanks to last weekends hunt. and psyco is correct we don't take a leasurely stroll when the dogs are in hot persuit bayed or treed. ask steve the terrain is extreme it's thick and steep with long steep pulls to get on top of ridges.

Well I'm 6' 5" and 290lbs, I diet and work out three times a week and jog twice a week (I’ll do my best). I'm sure it’s going to be pretty hard but I look forward to the challenge. And if nothing else it will be a learning experience.
When it comes to my truck..... Not happen..... No way. Its nothing special but its new and its mine. I don't have very much and the things I do have I keep like new as long as possible. Stevo will tell you how anal I am with my stuff.

6'5"..thats how tall my buddy is that is coming....You guys are screwed.....height is a disadvantage out there. Im only 6'1" and had a hard time ducking and getting through. Jeff is a shorty and he was moving through them hills. His buddy and I decided to call him a dang mountain goat....
Its tough out there and I suggest you keep up the jogging and try to put in as many miles at one time as you can and add some inclines if you can. The inclines are what kill you. Some hack squats will help that out. The more and more I think about it the less and less I get excited about it....My legs are getting sore just thinking about it.

You got that right. I wish I was about 3 inches shorter for trips like that. With me and Steve's buddy...sounds like we could just strap the bear to our backs and walk on out
