To: Tony, Re: Your Recent Blog Post About Caving in Jamaica
By Diane Schutz, Producer
Tony: I love you like a brother … but after hearing you talk about the difficulty of our caving adventure in Jamaica, I needed to chime in here! I\’m convinced you\’ve become, as your British pals might say, a big girl\’s blouse.
You wrote that this was \”the hardest, most physically demanding, insanely foolhardy and irresponsible venture ever on NO RESERVATIONS\”. Really? I know your memory is somewhat selective, but can I remind you of such shoots as Malaysia, where we hauled ass through the jungles of Sarawak for 6 hours, trying to keep up with our 80-something-year-old, amazingly fit Iban guide? Or New Zealand, where we huffed and puffed up 45-degree-angle hills to hunt a 400-pound wild boar … an angry boar that could have turned on any of us at a given moment, carving us into carpaccio?
