    Rescue Me ( great Supremes song ) If they decide to go to Baxter then it is allways Katahdin. Hey Andrew, that's me. I was coming down hunt trail from Katahdin and at dusk I put my headlamp on and the batteries were dead! I was lucky as the last mile on that trail ( beyond the stream ) was...

    Looking for an aggressive weekend trip

    Why do you get tired?

    The biggest problem is not getting oxygen into the lungs, but getting it to the muscles where it can be used. This is where training and diet comes in.

    Why do you get tired?

    My chest hardly moves when I breath hard. I mostly breathe through my lower lungs, my stomach moves a lot more than my chest. If you just breathe through your chest you're wasting a lot of unused lung area. grog
