We consider the effect of "trimming" ergodic sums of their maximal values on the strong law of large numbers for non-negative, non-integrable, mixing stationary processes. The results obtained are used to show the failure of the strong law of large numbers for modified continued fraction coefficients, and to study the "cusp visits" of a certain interval map.
