This thread has changed dramatically since I asked the opening line to that joke just a few days ago. There was nothing trollish about my intent. At the time, it seemed there would be a handful of us charting Dave's progress across the country.
And that troll quiz about what you call a jogger from Duncan?
YEs, it's unfortunate this thread got so derailed by one person. From now on, ignoring said person and focusing on Dave's run
The guy is clearly unstable: old age, mental illness, drugs or some combination of the three. I don't know why LRC encouraged him by posting his ramblings; perhaps to encourage controversy and more clicks? All it has done is embolden him to be more prolific and more incoherent and weird. I'm guessing maybe his intent is to wreck this thread and drive everyone away, and he has for me. I won't be back. The cost to get me off the thread? I believe Al's run is totally suspect if the proof of it was recorded by hand by this unstable loon. Has anyone ever even seen the evidence of Al's run? The protests of his buddy here make it all seem very strange and inherently unreliable. When Dave finishes his run it seems it will be the only reliably reordered effort and as such no matter how long it takes, even if it's 73 days, it will deserve to be the true record as it can be proven - rather than using the incoherent ramblings of a loon as evidence of anything.
