In the two previous installments of this story I shared about two lessons I learned from being lost in the wilderness with four of my weird and beloved friends. Part 1: “Pride comes before a fall” and Part 2: “Don’t ignore warning signs.”

Finally I get to tell you about the swamps, moose, a remote cabin, a lost sole, and our rescue along with the final lessons I learned.

Five Weird Guys

Five Weird Guys

It was scheduled to be a simple scenic adventure with four of my comedian friends; a “three hour tour” at the most. (Shades of Gilligan’s Island)

It ended up being 12 hours of “Lost in the Wilderness”

Over the next several posts I will tell the story and the lessons learned on the adventure. Enjoy the first installment.

How to Eat an Elephant

cruise0022At age 65 and almost 250 pounds, I was desperate to do something to regain my health.

My first attempts at exercise were sporadic and it took me awhile to learn what healthy eating was all about. I didn’t have the perfect plan but it was gratifying to be headed in the right direction.

The goal of being fully alive physically is daunting and sometimes seems impossible. There are times when in spite of all your resolve, weeks and months pass without progress.

It’s as though you stand gazing at a mountain peak, longing to be at the summit. But without some intermediate goals, your friends may find you standing in the same place years later still dreaming of being at the top.
