“I have noticed that nowslimmer hasn't posted in a while. Did he leave TT becasue of some threads that were posted? I hope he isn't sick. Has anyone heard from him?”
“He's ok. He's a real good guy. He has just opted out of circulation for a while. I'm sure he'll be back when he's ready...”
“I was wondering, too.”
“It's true. I spoke to him by e mail and he is just taking a break for his own reasons.”
“I had thought he was heading up to the Smokies...but glad to here he is well.”
“I got an email from him the other day. like treebeard said he is taking a break but he is doing good. I hope he returns soon...”

“Cops in North Carolina thought it was odd enough a Florida man was driving an ambulance reported stolen hours earlier.
Odder still was that he was wearing a makeshift doctor's uniform consisting of a stethoscope, a pager-like gadget and latex gloves stuffed in his back pocket.
But then things started getting really strange when they saw a dead deer, fully stretched out and wedged in the back. Some said there was an intravenous line attached to the animal and there was evidence a defibrillator had been used.
“Hey Slim, Where are you?”
you know where this place is?

“I'm not 100% in this post (meaning I don't have multiple sources of my position) BUT I believe he's OK... it's just that his computer is down so he's not checking in & posting as he usually does!
Let's hope /pray he's OK -

“He was in the hospital a few weeks ago with congestive heart failure and something else...maybe blood pressure...”
Heart Failure and diabetes
“thanks for this info.”
“I finally found Claudia's email address.
I thought several of you would like an update.....
Dad has been in the hospital, then in a rehab center, now back in the hospital this past month. He is getting a procedure called aquapheresis for congestive heart failure right now, and in the morning will be getting a "cardioversion:" (a shock) for atrial fibrillation.
He is in great spirits though. Still joking around and the past 3 mondays made it to his martial arts class and enjoyed it despite it all. He is looking forward to backpacking again, was hoping to leave next week. We'll see.
Thank you for thinking of him. You can share this information with others if you like.
“Hope to get to hike with you some time nowslimmer.”
“Thank you for the update, NG.”
“Thanks for the info!!!....I miss him when he's not here!!!”
“Thank you for the update.”
“Good morning. I doing fine, but I'm still in a recovery stage. Oops, there is no recovery from this unless I get those stem cells inserted in my heart and that they work. But I am up to swimming 1,250 yards slowly. Thats about one third of my goal of at least two miles.
Thanks for all the posts and your concern. I sure joined a great group, when I joined TT. You're all wonderful.
crash bang - For your information:
I may have been slow, but I was keeping time with a TT group. I caught up with them along the trail!
And I had no wife at that time. However, I did have a pretty, young girl with me.
