Okay kids! It’s add a verse time! Add a verse to the ‘song’ as inspiration strikes!I’ll start. To the tune of The Lumberjack Song (with my apologies to Monty Python)I’m a backpacker and I’m OK,I sleep all night and I hike all day.I don’t bathe much, I freeze-dry food, I Poop holding on to trees.On Sunday’s I’m out hiking, while you’re watching TVOh…....
I walk for hours, I wear few clothes I like to cross icy streams.I sleep in a bivy and pee in a jarI eat lots and lots of energy bars.

My gear is the lightest and has multiple usesJust one pot is employed to boil to eat and to pee.My routes and my board posts stem from logical musesOn the Briggs Myers, of course, I'm an INTP.

My closet's stuffed, with nary a niche, the floor's paved with old cans.My new pack's lost its glamourCause the next version's less 2 grams!Oh.....

...I sneer at the loads on the heavyweight's back,making no mention of the rack upon rackof gear I've amassed in garage and closet...$8000 dollars of down, cuben, and carbon composite...
I feel real good in my lumberjack shirtI Hike in the woods and I sleep in the dirtThey say my boots ain't looking ULBut I like my clogs so they can go to H___
I post all day, and I post all night.I sell on Ebay, cause money is tight.But I hit the trail, I have no fear,I got the Contrail, I've got the gear.
When the wife complains, screaming "It's not fair!",I remind her that, it's a "backup" pair,You can never have, too many LT4's,Just ask Douglas Ide, he's the one who scores! (I couldn't resist Doug, I mean no harm!)
Lighter overnighterSlithering to fringe spaceBecoming Daedalus or the walrusWith wet feet and dirty face
You rock George.
