Yesterday was a fun, dangerous and challenging for me. Drove 3 and a half hours to climb Mt. Greylock in MA.
Whoa, pretty cool. Glad it turned out okay and no one got hurt. But geez falling down and sliding would be pretty scary on an ice mountain.

The last two pictures are really great. Nice scenery.

Dude this looks hardcore! What were you thinking going up that ice mountain? For sport?
I know (!) I can't believe I climbed it haha! 10 minutes into the climb I realized there was ice and looked up, saw most of the path covered with ice till a bend about 50 feet away. After that bend there was just ice all the way to the top. It's about 1.5/1.6 miles (total vertical distance via Thunderbolt is supposedly 2,275 feet in roughly 2 miles) and was frakkin hard as hell. I wasn't expecting it to be ice'd, just a little snow on the top because I'd read online about it snowing towards the end of Jan for a bit. I guess that snow never got a chance to melt. Haha, not for sport, I wish though! I love the outdoors and gonna take every chance I get to go out. If anyone on here hikes/ climbs and has recommendations for slopes, please post em! My goal this year is to climb/ hike over at least 15 slopes.

I would like to do that. It reminds me of my highschool hiking club. We used to go around the state and do hiking trails throughout the year. You should have gotten metal sticks instead, for each hand.
You're so far :'( ... I can imagine you yelling at me to walk quicker or not slow you down haha! Yeah, I needed metal sticks/ ski poles/ ice axe with metal spike-grip boots but I wasn't expecting ice on the trail, unfortunately most of the trail was iced =_='. I definitely learnt from this and I'll be well equipped next time around. Already, I've decided to climb the same mountain next year and my goal is to shave 30/45 minutes off my climb-time from this trip.

This was the first time I fell that bad but my reflexes were better than I expected (just a bit) and I managed to dodge the twisting ankle badly/ landing face first/ landing on the knee/ hitting tree face first kinda scenarios : p

Here's a pic of the section right after The Bend ... took the pic on our way up, you can see the sort of angle we were climbing, fun.

DirectDK (left), me (center), and IncantatioN (right) met for pizza tonight at Lombardi's in NYC.







Then we went out for drinks at a place called "Puck Fare" :puck: Had a good time. We talked Berserk and SKnet for something like 4 hours.
. We should really do it again.

Man that's awesome. I'm jealous. I want to talk Berserk with someone from Skullknight in real life :judo: Man Incantation you seem to be everywhere huh? I was considering hiking up that mountain with you because I don't live that far away from there, but after seeing your pics I'm glad I kept my lazy ass on the couch playing games :serpico:

I'm jealous too! I have no one to discuss Berserk with in real life... well, not in English, anyway. :judo: All SkullKnight members should come to Japan so we can have a meet-up! Oh yeah, and I guess we can go see the movie, too. :troll:

I guess I should post a pic, huh. Here's me with my bird, Teki.


Also, here's the bookmarks we got when we saw the movie! The first time my husband and I both got Guts, but the second time he got Zodd and I got Griffith. :griffnotevil:



They're lenticular!

 
I had a blast last night, thanks Derek and Walter! So many highlights I can think of and yeah, I'll pick up Spartacus soon. YES, we should totally hang out again!

Oburi, you can talk Berserk with Seiren ^_~. The past few weeks I've been trying to get more active to knock off some cholesterol, so I've been traveling for treks. I'm going on working-leave for 3 weeks but I plan to resume my outdoorsy activities when I get back. You're around MA? The climb that day was ... fun and dangerous. We wouldn't have had the time to talk Berserk haha!

You should next time, it would be a good experience. Plus, Incantation is one of the nicest people you'll meet.

Those are some cute little munchkins you've got there, Mazinken! Are they twins?

StarKodama, that's awesome that you got to see the Berserk movie in theaters. Your bookmarks look neat, too. And you've got a cute bird, what else can you possibly want?

Walter, it looks like you guys had a lot of fun! That pizza looks delicious. It makes me wish that there were more Berserk fans near my house. :judo:
 
Cute kids mazinken, and congrats on the bundle of joy on his way this month!
