Now I feel a bit bad that I posted his pic here several times in a joking manner.

-If nothing else, you made me laugh a bit, Joseph. RIP. :angel:

Too bad. Very sad.

There is a guy around here in his 50's who wears a bikini-type bathing suit, and nothing more, when he rides his road bike.. You can see pretty much everything from the back. Covers about as much as a thong.

I have been to Big Bend National Park. Very spectacular - something you might not suspect nor expect in Texas, know for its flat land.

RIP!

I hope, to preserve a shaky optimism, that he was simply yodeling naked at the precipice, lost his balance, and fell to his death rather than that he killed himself or was killed by someone else. As much as we may ridicule the outrageous, we'd live in an awfully colorless world if they weren't around. If heaven exists, I hope Joseph Gottschalk can follow A. Troll's advice there and ride nekkid!

I think it is the eccentrics who make the world interesting.

And, go to beaches in the Caribbean, Europe and other places and you will see both men and women without even thongs on.

Imagine my and my wife's surprise seeing a nude male gentleman on a Beach in St Maarten (French side) lying face down on a webbed lounger. Yes, you have the picture!!

I'm betting that 52 year old man was in better shape than you,
and had better body definition.

No, its not a surprizing topic do a search on Thong
we've discussed Mr. Gottschalk before.
and there is nothing to LOL about here its a sad ending
for a free spirit/ Free thinker which we have all too few of.

Godspeed Mr. Gottschalk

If this article was shown in my forum there would be much more then "LOL's"

Oh, don't worry about it- we're all entitled to our own opinions, and we'll often disagree here anyways, so you don't have to worry about flame wars!

Aren't too many "enemies" here either, although I see some grudge matches going on here!

It's funny, I just saw him a couple of weeks ago here in San Anto and he was just riding along. I didn't really care that he was almost nekkid, but honked, and gave a thumbs up. He waved back. I was just impressed that he was actually out riding his bike. The thing is that's kind of rare over here on this side of town. Most people would just as soon steal your bike as ride it. It's definitely a sad loss, he WAS still a human being after all.

TravisJPed,

Not a problem, I'm just a bit cranky this morning.
52 year old guys in thongs are not my thing either

Sorry bout the over the top response.
and no, there really are no enemies here
(unless maybe if you drive an SUV )

Nothing. I was referring to a thread in the lounge
about hated SUV drivers. . .
I own a Durango, and my last good suv was a
LandCruiser so I have NO problems with SUVs
(well ok, H2's are just plain stupid if you ask me!)

I cannot help but wonder if this guy was just in need of attention due to depression and finally just decided to go somewhere and take a leap.

It is sad to read about and at the same time I am angered that it seemed noone may have talked to this fella about possible personal problems he was having which led to extreme attempts at getting attention. Lts face it, how reasonable is it to ride on a bike with a thong? I even have bike shorts that are not really very comfortable.

I hope he did not kill himself and die with a mind filled with turmoil.

Sam,

I grew up in the 60's so its very reasonable

From what I can gather from reading articles on net etc.
his riding with a thong wasn't an attention seeking measure,
more of a comfort issue (hey, to each his own).

It just doesn't feel like a suicide to me, he told too many
people where he was gonna be, talked to rangers etc.
doesn't fit patterns (but then nothing about this guy did)
of someone who is depressed and suicidal.

Marty
