    Cool to see that what he's sold so far for his rating of "14",is most of his toys.
    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.

    Scanned the ebay listing for key words or phrases that would entice me to bid none of which I found -
    Licensed masseuse or chiropractor, Sherpa descendant, sexy reading voice, and extreme wild crafting skills such as the ability to make lambs quarters taste like chocolate.

    LOL....the temptation to ask him questions is soooo strong!

    "Will you carry everything?

    Are you into cougars?

    Will you make all the treks into town for resupplies?"

    No skills and the same price (I think) as an experienced guide who is taking a group out? (I know someone here knows who I'm talking about, but the name escapes me).

    Too funny.

    This can't be serious.

    It reminds me of those gold digger travel websites where men select ladies to go on luxury vacations with them.

    I've seen one of those. Hilarious! "Gold diggers" was the very first thought that came to mind. The second had more to do with the world's oldest profession.

    He could be an AT sherpa! I'll send him a Q. asking if he can carry a giant blue plastic barrell on his head.

    Mail Order backpacking partner: from Ukraine, tall and leggy, send all checks overseas for as long as he sticks around and doesn't dump you for someone else with more money?

    Maybe, he comes from one of those sad, sad "hiker mills" where you're never really sure if his shots are up to date or his pedigree is authentic? Will he mind a swat on the nose with rolled up toilet tissue if he makes doo-doo and doesn't bury it 6-8" deep and 200 feet off the trail?

    I think the next time I'm hard up for cash I'll auction off my soul on ebay since he's doing nearly the same thing. Tell me this nutter is going to remain cheerful for over two thousand freaking miles. You never "know" someone until you get on the trail with them- believe me. I already dumped one bossy and selfish hiking partner this year... this dude sounds off balanced :-)

    Just another moocher trying to get someone else to pay for his vacation.
