Once I walked from the Hungarian-Slovenian border to the Adriatic Sea, contracting only moderate Achilles tendonitis. I made the first descent of Black Wolf Creek, in Canada's Northwest Territories. I’ve hitchhiked from California to Maryland wearing a Santa hat and carrying a sign that read “Home by X-mas.” I can frame a house, make chicken stock from scratch, and tell a good story.
