    A sight for sore eyes this morning, seeing you in back in the lineup! Welcome back to civilization. Looking forward to your recovery and a full report...was that Burt Reynolds in that photo?

    I'm just glad you survived and weren't eaten by bears, my child.

    How do you know you lost 7 pounds? Did you bring a scale, but not a tent?

    I hope you don't get pneumonia ...

    With a tent, and all kinds of fun electronic toys, all he is missing is internet access to make it a vacation of sorts. Well that and some coeds....

    My advice to my brother was to immediately set up his tent, crawl into his sleeping bag and patiently wait five days for help.
    Let us all collectively wish Jim well in the land of the Grizzly bear, jogger-eating mountain lion, occasional angry and intoxicated Pied Noir warrior, and survivalist breakaway Mormon skinhead.

    You are the best kind of friend Floyd! Stephanie surely will be comforted knowing she will be well provided for. I believe Jim will appreciate this magnanimous gesture on your part. If needed I will do my best to take over the Mr. Magoo style scooter riding around Sewickley.

    Jim, should you perish in the wilds of Idaho I will mourn your loss. Then I will immediately lay claim to and take up residence in one the compounds that you formerly claimed as your own.
    And should the lovely Stephanie need to be consoled......

    For some reason, from your blog title, I just assumed you were going to Ann Arbor...

    Go forth and conquer. Smoke signal if you need help or find a friendly collie or carrier pigeon to get your message out. Better yet, swallow a satellite enabled iPhone in a bileproof pouch before you're dropped and in a few painful days you'll be re-vlogging from the backwoods.

    Hey jimby, take it easy on the wolverines, linx's, and bears. I'm sure they have never dealt with the likes of a Selkie/Jimby/Vlogger! Good Luck!

    Thanks, Bill. It will either be me of Scuzzlebutt.

    And if you don't show up a week from now and some years in the future we hear of sightings of a wild man in the woods, albeit not a frightening creature that tears off people's limbs and eats their hearts out akin to Oreius and Agrius but rather a kindly gentle beast, we will know that our Jimby lives on! The former selkie morphed into a Yeti and as such another magical creature indeed!
