My experiences with thru-hiking

This summer, while Tom Hanks is running around Europe looking dapper than ever in his new blockbuster, chasing Angels & Demons, fighting off men in robes, staying at fancy hotels, eating at five-star restaurants, deciphering even more clues…I am laboring up some hill like a mule, grunting and sweating like a pig. Or should I say a “pule” or a “mig”?

Of course, I’m seeing my share of castles and ruins too, as I walk by a fairy-tale looking castle called Haute-Koenigbourg that was unfortunately overrun by tourists, and saw the Chateau de Haute-Ribeaupierre and two other ruined castles, before heading down into the town of Ribeauville, where I found myself a campsite and finally (and I mean finally) threw my stinky clothes into a washing machine.

And how does Tom Hanks always manage to find some beautiful woman to be his sidekick? I have no clue.
