The real story about how the fat are treated
If you want to know how some people, really fit and healthy people, treat the overweight, check out Big Red's trail journal.
I know I've mentioned it before, but this man is incredible. He's a walking anachronism. He's big, tall, weighs 345 pounds at the start of his thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT), bald, and has red hair. He's also educated, witty, and generally a nice guy. Starting out on the trail with no hiking experience, a penchant for real beds with linens and hot showers, and coming from Cincinnati of all places, this man is an inspiration and a revelation. Check him out.
If you think there is a goal you can't reach, you won't think that when you read Big Red's journal.
