Writer notice; Joe Simpson (Foreword through)
------------------

A post-climb fiasco within the places of work of petty Pakistani bureaucrats proves that now not all epics occur on excessive mountain faces. Falling of a rock climb in entrance of his mom is an workout in humility.

Example text

I left the boat at Frank’s house and then helped my friend drive her car back to Mississippi, where I quickly got my gear together and bought a Greyhound ticket to get back to SOUTHBOUND [ 29 ] Tampa. By the time all this was accomplished, November had arrived and my travel funds were reduced by $1,500. Conditions were choppy on the wide-open waters of Tampa Bay, but the wind was from astern and I made good progress as I paralleled the eastern shoreline from about a mile out. Before dark I passed under the massive span of the Sunshine Skyway bridge that connects St.

There was an occupied houseboat near the confluence, and two men on the porch talked under the glow of a Coleman lantern, unaware of the stealthy kayaks that slipped past just outside their circle of lamplight. Without a houseboat of our own, stopping here was not an option, because the banks of the lower Pascagoula are not inviting to campers, either being steep bluffs or swampy tangles of snake-infested woods growing right to the water’s edge. We paddled on in search of a spot, getting sleepy with the hypnotic dipping of the paddles like drivers trying to stay awake all night on an interstate highway.

If I resumed the trip at Round Island, cold fronts would overtake me before I could get to tropical latitudes. I decided to move my departure point farther south, to where I expected to be around the first of November anyway. I didn’t want to have to find room in the kayak for warm clothing. My oldest brother, Frank, lived in Apollo Beach, on Tampa Bay, and his waterfront home conveniently featured a dock in the backyard. When my kayak was ready, I arranged to have a friend drive me to Savannah to pick it up.
