FOR THE DETAILS OF THE “COMEBACK CHALLENGE” SCROLL DOWN FOR THE LAST POST THAT TELLS THE HISTORY FOR THE LAST 9 MONTHS…..
……from not being able to walk to where I am today.
MONTAGE BELOW IS A SUMMARY
Now, on July 27 still doing up to 300 yards daily walking on grass with no walking cane or any kind of devise, including getting on the ground for pushups and standing up on my own! — From July 14th on no going to the Supermarket parking lot anymore to use a shopping cart for my daily walking, rather using this wonderful gift from my Reams friend, Paul, and with it I did 1 mile on the 14th, then on the 15th 2 miles all at one time, and have increased to 3.6 miles yesterday, and 4 miles today on July 27th.
It’s fascinating to notice how an old 85+ year old taking “BABY STEPS,” ACTUALLY BRAGS ABOUT THOSE “STEPS” — as few months ago couldn’t even walk--now I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude to the Lord for those “steps” and for being able to increase my walking distances (with a walker)! It’s kind of ridiculous I guess, but I’m so thankful for even just a little progress–that for normal people is laughable–but I stopped being normal a long time ago. Maybe I’ve never been normal and the DUNDERHEAD & RODEO CLOWN labels some gave me are about right…..and I LOVE THEM!
So far I’ve learned that a rest day really sets back this old guy and has me feeling cruddy, so, like they say,
“NO REST FOR THE WEARY–or was it…….. FOR THE WICKED?”
I’LL PERSIST AS BEST I CAN “FAKING NOT BEING A CRIPPLE,” AND SEE HOW FAR THIS “COMEBACK” WILL TAKE ME – at least by next summer hoping to actually do a little hiking in the High Uintas.–NO BACKPACKING as my back can’t handle any weight. —
But, at least right now I feel so grateful that I’m actually feeling sore muscles in my legs–the right one especially as since last November it has been DEAD and A FEW MONTHS AGO THE MUSCLE HAD DISAPPEARED–as part of the 32 lbs. of weight loss– & HAD MY LEG REMINISCENT OF THE PICTURES OF THE HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS!!!!
PROMOTING & MARKETING THE HIGH UINTAS BOOK
If you know of a business capable of promoting/marketing the book, please contact me: email@example.com
NOTE: I frankly have not known how to promote it properly, and have to admit I have age problems that now make it difficult if not impossible. I just want it to be promoted properly and get into the hands of those who can appreciate it, blessed by increased enjoyment in the Uintas, and have it continue to SAVE LIVES!
Recent comments about the book:
ONE HIGH UINTAS FRIEND SAID: “I just wanted to tell you that what you have done making this book is an incredible accomplishment. Excellent job! The Uintas are a funny thing, because you spend a lifetime living right next to them (55 years for me) and you rarely use them. We always seem to follow the crowds and go to Yellowstone or Jackson Hole or Glacier or somewhere like that when we have an incredible gift right in our back yard……….Your book reminded me of the treasure we have here in Utah and I am going to focus my fly fishing/hiking/camping on the the incredible gift we have in the Uinta Mountains and document it on my YouTube channel. You have inspired me and many others. Thank you!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVJdvB276yg
ANOTHER, AMONG MANY THINGS SAID : “Your most recent email got me thinking about your great book…..I pulled it out and started going through its pages, getting the thrills of its beauty, and began to recall my own experiences in the Uintas……Thanks for all the work you have done to publish this book! I have a physical copy, and I have given my sons and daughters all the thumb drive with this book on. It is full of great information! Best of luck on your trips this [next] year!”
ANOTHER HIGH UINTA FRIEND RECENTLY SAID: “I have your book and it is great!“

NOW TO THE MYSTERIOUS MOUNTAINS OF THE MAYA
Finally the BOOK
A FIFTY YEAR “IMPOSSIBLE DREAM” AMONG MY PEOPLE IN THE MOUNTAINS OF THE MAYA
It’s finished….I promise.
A COUPLE OF THE FINAL ADDITIONS:
NEW: page 3: My 68 year journey really began with a 22 year long
“It basically taught me that I didn’t want to wait around for life to happen, rather reacted positively to the key spiritual experiences of my life THAT POINTED TO A CAUSE THAT WOULD MAKE ME HAPPY and SAVE LIVES, and by the end of my QUEST when 22 years old—I decided TO GO FOR IT!
“In most of our lives about everything else that happens to us is BACKGROUND NOISE. But, I strongly suggest to each of you that in the case of this QUEST and HISTORICAL FULFILLMENT: All the innumerable crisis, miracles, dangerous adventures, experimentation, hard work, scary life threatening episodes, frequent coincidences, risky dedication to literally attempt to apply correct principles, and controversial conflicts with powerful people, ARE ALL MORE THAN “BACKGROUND NOISE,” rather KEY PIECES OF THE PUZZLE OF THE ANDERSEN FAMILY LIFE that you have to FOCUS ON CAREFULLY—or YOU WILL MISS THE POINT OF THIS ENTIRE UNIQUE HISTORY. So, read on cautiously with a prayer in your heart so you’ll have a chance of UNDERSTANDING.
NEW: page 440 Last of all a HUGE ADDITION to Part 3: MEMORABLE EFFORTS, EVENTS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Us Andersen’s were “laughed to scorn” by “friendly fire”— but not friendly at all, for our attempt to help the Mayans, and criticized for our kids being “DUNDERHEADS!” So, the new CULMINATING item is:
33. OUR GREATEST BLESSING OVER 50 YEARS WAS OUR “DUNDERHEAD KIDS”
So, meet the “dunderheads”—all 15 of them!
NEW: I have recently added one last key item—a critical “life or death” one on page 386—to what now is a completed 552 page free online book with well over 1,000 color photographs of…….
” THE JUNGLES & MOUNTAINS OF THE MAYA WHERE COLOR WAS INVENTED”
