It's terrible publicity!
Here's the guy who's at the top of the Thru-Hiking heap, but who hasn't
got paid a friggin' dime - for over a year's worth of work - and instead
of being photographed with eye-popping women, spends part of his time
writing very calm and helpfull replies to questions on a free internet
He's setting a rotten example. What are ghetto kids going to think about
such low-brow behavior? How can we encourage the American people out on
the trails unless our marquee guy starts looking a little better? Come
on Brian, get with it dude! Instead of, "...this Bay Area man went from
high-tech to high-trek", I want to see the SF Chronicle headlines read:
THRU-HIKER ARRRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES
"Huge quantity of Flintstones vitamins seized in dawn raid."
THRU-HIKER THROWN OUT OF STORE
"Ruckus breaks out when Robinson suggests backpack is too heavy."
THRU-HIKER WRECKS CAR
"Robinson's car, the same one he's been driving since high school,
finally falls apart. Investigators seek to link Snickers Bars to cause."
Well, I don't know, maybe it's hopeless. Maybe someone else should do
the 3Crown - barefoot or something - who is able to set a better example.
