Oh, Comely

Quite the contrast to last time, I had a 10/10 view off Mount Diablo!

  • Never underestimate the climb. Knowing what you’re in for is half the battle.
  • Apply sunscreen. Reapply sunscreen during the climb, you’ll sweat that shit right off your skin. If you’re tanned, don’t get cocky.
  • Pay attention to the trail, even if you’re tired from that damn climb. Before you know it you’ll break an ankle or step in surprise bog. You never know, really. Not until it’s too late.

It allows you to always have someplace familiar close by, someplace you can go to see friendly faces you know and love, and act as if nothing is all that different from normal. And in that space, it isn’t.

Did I ever get mad about maths before? Let me get mad about maths.

My educational background is sorely lacking in the maths department.
