Day 26

Still here. Something came up and I've been ignoring this blog. Can't really discuss it until the documentary is finished.

Sorry to be cryptic. Real life can throw you curveballs sometimes. I'm just swinging as best I can.

  1. Keep swinging Joe. You have friends who think you rock. Take care of YOU.

    Not meaning to digress---

    BTW-- I read "Origin" and LOVED it. Scared the crapola out of me. I also liked the ending...won't wax poetic but wanted to say kudos.

    PS-- NOT trying to hijack a thread or anything, but as a thank you, if interested, my book "Ten Thousand News Eves" will be free on Sunday.

  9. Joe,

    Something good like a Super Bowl commercial for Bud?

    Something bad like a Super Bowel commercial for your local hospital?

    Hang in there,

    Morris

  11. Nobody thought you were DEAD, but rather hospitalized or better yet trying out that coma diet that showed so much promise.

    Good to see you're still kickin' :)

  16. Joe is not the only one - an intersting way to lose weight!

    Made it! After no fewer than 89 days, trekking a little more than 2250 kilometres in appalling conditions, yesterday - still Australia Day in their time zone - the Sydneysiders James Castrission and Justin Jones succeeded in their attempt to trek from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole and back, unassisted.
    ''We're shattered, physically, mentally and emotionally,'' a slurring Castrission said over a scratchy line, in their first interview since arriving at Hercules Inlet on the coast of Antarctica that lies closest to South America, about 1000 kilometres to their north.
    And yet still their travails are not quite over. For when the Russian plane scheduled to pluck them to safety came over, it could not land because of dangerous winds and poor light, and was not even able to drop fresh supplies.

    The lack of supplies was particularly significant because since day 36 the two - who first came to fame in 2008 by becoming the first to paddle a kayak from the east coast of Australia to the west coast of New Zealand - have been on half-rations every second day, and have lost 50 kilograms between them.
    ''We're absolutely starving,'' Castrission said simply, while Jones was out and about, trying to put markers out for the aeroplane to make a second attempt to land in perhaps 12 hours' time. ''All I want right now is a big meat pie with loads of tomato sauce and a big beer in my hand … but that is still a long way away,'' he said.

  18. Good to hear you are still breathing. (You arent going on an oxygen fast are you?)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yep, read Origin this week.

    Really fun read. I like it a lot.

  20. I was pretty sure you had died. Good to see you didn't.

  21. You stay well and I'll stay tuned.

  22. I call a sell out. Give us all the big hype at first with videos, photos and multiple post each day. Slowly give us less and less over time, now you are all hooked. Sign a video deal and you are all cut off, waiting and wanting more. Wait 18 for months for the rest. He was hospitalized and didn't make it, The End!

  23. This blog has certainly fizzled out. I think you have raised expectations initially and then disappointed them.

  24. So Joe... this should be Day 30. Let us know how reentry goes. Take care of yourself!

  26. So are you going to check in, Joe? It should be over by now, right...? Some of us are actually worried about you.

    Please just drop in to say hello.

  27. Wow, that's a crazy diet. I'm not surprised your readers are concerned about your health. However, I can't help but wait on the edge of my seat for the results.
