[pct-l] Never Try to Outsmart Your Trail Partner
I have a better solution to the lawn problem, instead off getting a pack
horse to mow  (eat) the lawn, Switchback could mow (eat) the lawn, you know
like grazing in the meadow.
I don't know if grass is considered a vegetable, it looks green like
vegetable, but they say vegetables are good for you and being very low in
calories it would help Switchback loose the 100 pounds he was talking about
As a matter of fact, hikers as a whole could really lighten up by
eliminating the food, stove and pots and pans and grazing in the meadows

I don't know where you run into these dumb old hikers. Maybe
they are the ones who spend more time in the saloon than on
the trail. Anyway the solution to the lawn problem is get a
pack horse to carry your pack. When you are not hiking, the
horse can mow (eat) your lawn. Or maybe a goat or a llama.
