"Hiking"??? Pfft! Hardly.

More like Summiting Mt.s Cotopaxi and Chimborazo on the Cordillera. Of course, had to stay in Quito afterwards for a week indulging in a steady diet of Ceviche and Roche Roja while being generously pampered by the locales. Other than some early Soroche ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altitude_sickness ) and minor frostbite, an epic adventure, to be sure! cool

So, I guess there's NO Comparison, AT all (not that you'd have the slightest idea).

OR...

Permit applications are in for Cerro Torre this summer. Whatdaya think... Interested? Just send your 50% deposit of $5000 and I'll save you a tie-in spot on the sharp end. whistle




CLIMB the Talk! whistle

Yup. Looks like the sketched-out gumbies wound up defecating themselves again.

It's all good. wink

Spare the cornball canard Kyle. Solidarity with indigenous folks can take multifarious form or deed.

Maybe some critical reflection on your obstinate colonial mentality will release that millstone around your neck.

The accompanying albatross likely gets in the way of seeing said millstone.

If he's wise, he'll one day heed your hopefull wishes.

you claimed you voluntered in the US navy

maybe what you should do is take all the money that the US has payed you and donate it to the 'tribe'

all the reduction in your taxes for voluntering in the US navy you should donate to the 'tribe'

all the healthcare (monetary terms) that you received by US taxpayer money should be donated to the 'tribe'

every cent that you gained from the US should be donated to the 'tribe'

you would not want 'blood money' would you?

especially for a 'vaca'

You see, blue... that's the whole point that the two of you civilians can't seem to get through your mutual sense of "colonial" entitlement. Not only DID I serve my country, while in the Navy on multiple Westpac tours, but I also voulunteered. I didn't have to be asked. And anyone who's ever put in as many greulling years pulling sea-duty as I have, knows that I EARNED every dime and additional service-related benefit (past AND present). And as neither of you two land-lubbers are unable to even remotely lay claim to any such sacrifice, it's therefore a fact that it's both of YOU who are, in reality, reaping unearned taxpayer benefits. NOT the other way around. I've already paid the price. Those who haven't, will remain forever in debt to those of us who have.

"especially for a 'vaca.'"

As for my high altitude "vacations" as you refer to them... I gained the required courage through my military service. I've earned the $$$ to afford such adventure, while in the private sector. How much did that PC set you back... $300, give-or-take??? smirk

odd

you claim you spent a large amount of money to go on a climbing vacation but yet the photo of your garden you posted in the gardening thread seems to show your home may only be worth about $50,000

your yard is no bigger than a postage stamp whistle.

more grade fairy tales by the one and only timbo

LOL

did you splurge on the $7 plastic lawn furniture? grin

LOL! laugh laugh laugh

This gets better and better with each passing ridiculous comment on your part!

That's just one of three vegetable gardens, six huge flower gardens and seating for sixteen in a central entertainment area with enclosed fire-pit in the middle. That's just the back yard. There are twice as many flowers in the front. I DO appreciate your sincere envy [interest], however.

Now... as for the property in the Adirondacks... cool

Oh, and FYI... I made no claims whatsoever on these forums, as to how much money I've spent on ANYTHING... EVER! crazy

Not nearly as big as the great lengths to which YOU go to to avoid researching historical facts and replying to the countless questions put to you, by others. whistle

What I don't mind discussing when discussions of "Walking-the-Talk" comes up, is that, in my life, I've contributed Far, FAR more than the two of you combined, when it comes to matters of National Public Service, World View and Travel, and the Advancement of Rights The World's Subjugated Indigenous Peoples and was even Awarded a Navy Humanitarian Medal as proof of that fact.
