My life has been a little boring as of late. Same old routine every day, feed the capybaras, attend to the slender lorises, check on the squid, bang Gertrude, bang Matilda, fix the fence, check the mail, etc. etc.
I need somethnig different, something challenging. I have given this matter a considerable amount of thought and have decided to have a friend fly me deep into the Alaska wilderness, make a low pass over a lake, and at that point I will jump into the lake. Completely naked. Just me and the Alaskan wilderness.
The weather is still relatively warm up there, so I should have time to kill some animals and fashion a crude axe out of the bones, and chop down some trees and build a cabin before the snow flies.
Admittedly, it's going to be a challenge, but the inner Ratzenhofer is screaming for release. I have an urgent need to return to the days of the cave man.
Once I get established up there, and figure out how to design a laptop computer I'll be in touch.
Does anyone here know how to make plastic? I might need some of that.
What else? Hmmmm, can't think of anything right now.
Well, I better go get undressed for the trip.
Wish me luck.

Does this mean you could be gone for years, Gus?
Not years, msolga. Months, perhaps.
I have ALWAYS wanted to tell Ratty to go jump in the lake.
Who will look after the animals, Gus?
Mind you, Gus is never REALLY naked....
Why doesn't he put some of the back hair on his head. Glue or something should work.
Poor Gus. He'll be scampering around in the wilderness. Nest thing you know, some novice hunter will think that he has discovered the Abominable Snowman,........................................and BANG!
Won't Gus' balding head help identify him as human, Phoenix?
Truly, that is a bloodthirsty image - you have chilled my blood!
That's a chance I'll have to take, Phoenix.
I love living on the edge.
Did you say, axe, wilderness, naked?
For some strange reason I'm having some sort of flashback, and I'm excited.
Gus I would hate for you to get ahead of yourself... why don't you take this short quiz to make sure you are ready for your adventure:
#5 will really come in handy for you.
I got five questions right on the quiz. I humbly offer my services as wilderness guide to gus.
I got 4 answers right, do you think Gus will let me tag along?
I only got 4 right as well. I think we might be more of a liability for Gus.
Not until we know how many he got right. I would have had six, but that question about eating old man's root confused me, as we were talking about gus, so I answered 'never'.
well, since it's edible anytime, gus should have no problem. he can just regrow his beard and then eat it later.
gus, please wear sunscreen. Wouldn't want you to get burned in any nether regions.
Jes, good thinking-
Here is some 'Rocky Mountain Sunscreen'...for Gus' rocky mountain.
I got six correct, meaning I will soon be naming a ball Wilson. I wonder how the equation changes if one is also naked.
