Did the grind the day before yesterday. Went with some people who i shouldn't have gone with. I've never done the grind before and i just really wanted to finish. I didn't care about the time or anything. I should've gone with my brother, but i chose these girls instead. here's are some notables of that day.
-Absolutely perfect weather, it was nice and cool and all you needed was a t-shirt
-for once the mosquitos were NOT biting
-I completed the grind
-the view at the top was alot nicer than the picture, it was spectacular
-lost some wieght
-felt great afterwards
-here was the tone of the company i was with
LAVA: just come get me from my brother's place
CHICK: no problem give me directions
LAVA: i'm at 1234 in Whalley
CHICK: Whalley!!!!, isn't that where all the poor people live?
-The people i was with were CLUELESS as to what hiking is,
-one chick said "i didn't know there was gonna be stairs"
-i was carrying all thier purses in my back pack, stuff that should've been left in the car.
-at about the 1/2 way mark i was stopped by one chick and she took out her purse and started to apply lipstick.
-10 minutes into the hike we almost went home cause they were pooped.
-They made crack comments to other hikers that passed us by.
-The pace was slow
-On the way there and back i had to listen to Robbie Williams because "Robbie Williams is God and anyone who doesn't like Robbie Williams must settle for the Moulon Rouge soundtrack"
-God i would've given a finger for some Metalica or Linkin Park
Except for the company i was with, it was a beautiful hike. I wanted to eat at the top of grouse but the menu did not suit the tastes of these girls i was with. We took the Gondola down and went to Milestones...somewhere.
I'll do the Grind again some day, but i know who i won't be doin it with
