Exercise for the Elite: 4 minutes a day will keep you in shape!

However: Some folks don't really have a lot of bread or even really care to be wealthy. Some of these new fangled inventions just don't make much sense to them.

Long Distance Hikes on the Longest Trail

End to End Hall of Fame

Peter Wolfe who was a recovering alchoholic who was living on the streets decided to dry out by hiking the longest trail in the US. It took 7 years for him to get in shape but it wasn't expensive and he enjoyed what he was doing. He wasn't really on a very tight schedule, and didn't have to cram his exersize into a 4 minute time slot to sustain himself. In 1974 Peter was the first to attempt the whole 4, 400 miles and is still remembered for it and has a trail named for him.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that some of these new fangled inventions will be the death of us, what with microwave pollution on the increase. Who do you know that doesn't have a cell phone around. I don't own one myself, but I'm surrounded by them. My kids are all experts on them and are one step from a Blackberry, just waiting for the larger bandwidths that will soon be the norm and fast connections that will allow teleconferences all over the planet. It will take a long hike in the wilderness to escape from the EMW's if we can even do so at all...G:
