Quandary Resolution 724
John Bull, yomp, evanescent, gelid
As the hiker yomped across the sastrugi, his mind losing focus, his gear failing to protect him from the gelid wind, he stopped thinking of an Alaskan doom, and gave his attention to evanescent fantasies: one minute, he became Uncle Sam pointing his finger at a recruit, the next minute he became John Bull in a tavern, sipping small ale.
