View from the Peak of Mt Helena August 23, 2017

Posted by Sobek in News.

20170815_145451 The web site said it takes two to three hours to hike, depending on skill level. I did it in an hour and four minutes, because screw that web site. Also, I did it in jeans and without any water or anything, because screw basic preparedness.

It’s a good thing I went so fast, because I had a meeting afterwards. I made it with five minutes to spare. I felt like Mr. Incredible looking at my watch and saying, “yeah, I’ve got time.”

Nice view. I’m going to stick to driving for that altitude.

I thought the volcano blew up Mt. Saint Helena.

Hahaha. I had to giggle when you mentioned that “website” advice. I think people exaggerate the precautions to protect from getting sued if someone follows the advice and doesn’t like the results.

In a similar vein, restaurants appear to be doubling the wait time for being seated.

Whiner Insurance!

Whiner Insurance!

I’m stealing that catchphrase.
Cat Malfunction is another phrase I like.
