What do you mean again? hehe

I pretty much knew something like this would happen a week into his trip. I tried to help him and he wouldn't have it, I stayed off the blind encuragement bandwagon and tried to give him good advice.

Now I ask you, really, are you even surprised at this outcome? The sad thing is that all this craziness, lieing, cheating, etc. is what sells books and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a made for TV movie out next year about this.

I wonder how much money he pocketed from this "self journey", he'll need it when he's being depressed about his life LEAVING him because of this trip. When you have a house, wife, kids, etc. you really don't have to look very far to find the things that are important to you. Well, at least you shouldn't have to, and if your one that has to, maybe you shouldn't have made the comitment in the first place, both of that life and this trip.

This is my response to "The Fat Man Walking." It may be a little harsh, but it's true:

I caught your story on the news. You know... I don't get why you lied to everyone about this. You could have been such an inspiration to people, but now you've just shown others to not have faith in themselves and that people fail. If you couldnít walk that far, choose a shorter distance. If you didnít WANT to walk, then you shouldnít have started. People were counting on you... go back and read your old guestbook. Now look where this has gotten you; stuck in a crappy hotel getting fat again.

I wanted to share this article with you people of this board since we all had a small discussion a few weeks ago about another cross country trekker.It's sad that some people in this world have to be so deceitful.
