|I honestly hope you can say the same for yourself, that you follow your dreams to the letter, like I have done my whole life. Otherwise, stop behaving like a puerile idiot, go and take some ritalin yourself, and think for a second - like an adult does, before you press the 'reply' button on this forum. My old man used to say the classic cliche "If you don't have anything positive to say, then shut the f*%k up." Did yours?? Why waste your time saying negative things, are you trying to impress your wittle fwends by being the biggest bully in the schoolyard? Or do you not have anything of worth to actually offer??
I consider my upcoming Tibet trip to be a dream actually realised, and not a failure, in ANY sense of the word. Failure is when you set a personal goal, and do not achieve it because of factors that are within your control. If I come down with AMS, so be it - at least I was exploring my personal limits. By posting on Chocky, asking for information on how best to prepare myself, from people with far more knowledge and experience at altitude than me, I am trying to minimise my chances of a failure caused by my own ignorance. There's a famous Frank Zappa quote about hydrogen that applies directly to you. If you don't know what it is, don't worry - you never will.
Good luck, and a big thank you to all of the Chockstone people that have thus far helped my inquiries, this is most probably the last time I bother to post anything in this forum. Shame, really.... I think I have a lot of positive contributions to offer, if I couldn't be bothered wasting my time fending off useless faff from strangers, like I have just done.
Oh - that is - unless you can come up with some literate, relevant response to mine, One Day Hero? A response that doesn't involve a banal criticism about me offering my 'life's story and nobody cares blahdy blah blah'. I highly doubt it though.... Have a nice time, and try drugs sometime, they might make you a nicer person... :)
