LOL yes, memory is a huge part of the "problem" here, and if you think yours is bad now, wait until you're my age... I still think back on type-2 climbing experiences from 40 years ago and say to myself "you know, those four pitches of extreme offwidth really weren't THAT bad - in fact, I thought it was all pretty easy", when I'd have no prayer on succeeding on anything like that now.justiner wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 10:17 pmThis may work, but the root cause is that my memory is SO BAD. Like, was that trip really all that terrible? Maybe not...OldTrad wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:28 pm
Agreed that there's no cure specific to type-2 addiction, however my understanding is that a more drastic "scorched earth" approach can be taken.
All you have to do is increase the "fun"/"treatment" level to type-3 (see definition). This is as effective as anything short of a lobotomy, although those who know me may disagree, and will result in a complete cure for type-2 and type-3 mountain activities.
If, after engaging in type-3 fun you aren't cured, then by definition you didn't really up the fun to type-3, so go back and turn the "treatment" up a few clicks.

Then, re: Mark Twight... if you think YOUR memory is bad, think how bad HIS memory must have been!!
