Jeez, you ARE another excessive poster. Perhaps some more physical practice and less posting will help you relieve your stress...

Yeah I had a portable CD player, and a big bag of sun chips. (And plenty of money, enough to get arbys the nect morning.) I only had like two CD's but it was better than nothing. I wouldn't have gone that far in a day if it wasn't in the fall. I couldn't get to sleep when it was cold on the ground, I had to ride my bike to keep warm. Then I took a cat nap in some weeds when it was warm out, and that was enough for me, I had myself already pushed so far that I only needed a little sleep and I was fine again. I left at 11 PM and made it there at 7PM the next day. Well, about that anyway. I don't know for sure I didn't have a watch.

But yeah.. heh... it definitly put things in perspective for me. I'm much more laid back now.
Tricks aren't parkour but I'm not always faithful.

wow. 20 hours is incredible. i like riding my bike obscene distances and when i tell my parents where i am, they freak out :). anyways, i love working out to relieve stress. especially running as it releases some chemical into your body that is like a natural high. and its hard to be stressed out in that fatigued state. i really want to try that 20 hours of bike riding idea.
If youre not living on the edge, your taking up too much space.

I find parkour an excellent method for relieving stress. I usually try not to consciously do anything extremely ambitious or practice a new technique, because if I fail, well, that only stresses me out more. But certainly, driving all that angry energy and adrenalin out in this way doesn't harm anyone and really only helps me to regain control of myself (with the added bonus of a good workout). Runner's high is also a lovely little fringe benefit.
