In a Past Life...

You Were: An Arrogant Sailor.

Where You Lived: South Africa.

How You Died: Decapitation.

Ahhhh...South skies, palm trees, endless pleasures, and of course, the occasional decapitation of a head or two....

Anyway, I have just come back from a 50 mile hike through the olyimpic mountains, well, 44 mile hike. But we still get the 50 mile award because all the 5 mile practice hikes count towards the big one. Now follows a play-by-play acount of the trip as seen through the eyes of Beefloaf:

Day one-hike
Day two-hike
Day three-hike
Day four-hike
Day five-hike

Ha ha....jk jk jk jk jk.......

Day before day one---I and my little brother go to the scoutmaster's house at 8:00 pm, We then sleep there with four other scouts so that our parents won't have to bring us there at 5:00 AM the next morning. While going to sleep, Beefloaf and The chief ninja pirate with a whisk(herafter known as CNP) play mortal kombat till both of us sucumb to the wiles of sleep at 1:00 am.

Day one---I wake up at 5:00 am and prepare to leave in the van. Snipermonkey and CNP are the only other senior scouts an the trip. The rest of the scouts are refered to as "mini scouts." So all the people climb into the van which has a trailer hitched to it. Total people=3 Adults+one driver+9 scouts.
So we all set out on this great adventure going 60 mph down the highway. Little do we know how much we shall appreciate vehicles powered by means other than us at the end of the trip. At about 10:00 we stop for breakfast at Dennys. I eat the WHOLE MEAL, knowing full well that this is our last real food in 5 days. We then travel to the trailhead and at 11:30 we leave Quinault on the North Fork Trail Powered by our own collective 22 legs.
After about 2 hours of hiking uphill we stop for lunch and then keep going......uphill. The senior scouts and one adult leader(007 hazard...see link to left) take off ahead and blaze a trail to the first campsite: Trapper. We then eat dinner and go to sleep. Total miles that day---about 8.

Day two---We wake up, we start hiking up a hill. And we don't stop travelling uphill except for two river crossings until we reach low divide .Where we see lots of snow and a BEAR!!! I then eat one of the best freeze dried meals: pasta primavera. We all proceed to go to sleep about a quarter mile from where we saw the bear. That night we all scare ourselves enough that no one can get the courage to go to the bathroom:)

Day three---We all wake up and relieve ourselves:) After the regular breakfast of oatmeal and hot cocoa, a snowball fight starts between the senior scouts and the mini scouts....senior scouts win. Everyone then starts hiking and yours truly blows on his whistle in order to frighten the bears away, not that seeing grann wouldn't, but grann was in the back:) After hiking for several hours we eat lunch and keep going till we get to another river crossing, this one is really easy. Not that the other ones were hard, but it was relitively easy. So we keep hiking through the the decidedly most beautiful part of the hike untill we reach......hmmmm....ah yes, hayes camp. There we met an old couple who are volunteer rangers and werer cleaning the trail. They had really funny stories:) So we then went to sleep and dreamed dreamy dreams.

Day four---We all get up and after getting the skinny from the rangers on which camps are best, we hike to elkhorn. There we have lots of fun and the senior scouts take a bath. I mean this in the most frugal sense of the word, because what we did was dunk ourselves in 32* F water, soap ourselves, and then dunk again. If anyone tells me they have been in colder water than I have I will never believe them. Then we all ate dinner and went to bed. Except the senior scouts. We proceeded to have tons of fun throwing branches into the river, then pushing 300 pound logs into the river, and finally breaking small rock on big ones in the river. We had a lot of fun. Then we went to bed and slept.

Day five---This was the last day so we all wanted to get it over with as soon as possible. We took of as soon as possible and ate lunch at a camp site. We then charged on until we arrived at the trailhead at 5:00. We were then picked up by the scoutmaster and we went to MC'DONALDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The food was soooooooo good. So we then got home and everyone is happy, except the bear, because he didn't get our food.

So all in all it was a very good hike, despite having feet that hurt. James brought his water purifier with him so we allways had good water, and there were more than enough stoves to go around.

So I end this post with a quiz result that I hope is very true, and if it isn't let me know so I can work on it.

You Are 92% Gentleman

No doubt about it, you are a total gentleman.
You please the pickiest ladies, and you make everyone in a room feel comfortable.

THE PAIN!!!!!!!

Hello, I'm typing this post with one hand because my right hand is sprained in the wrist.:(
I was playing basketball with some friends after church last sunday and as I was guarding someone he bumped me and (because I was already off balance) I fell backwards. I proceeded to perform a nice neat roll into a standing position, and noticed that my right hand was hurting a great hurt. he he. So I then proceeded to finish the game, (and win) with only my left hand. After this I saw the rest of the people start a game of ULTIMATE FRISBEE!!!!! and so I started playing with my hand still hurting. So after falling on my hand twice (ow!!) I won the game and went home.
So I ask all you peoples not to start athletic games when I am injured, because I will just proceed to kill myself....almost.

The Rest of my life.

To be a man is to be responsible. It is to feel shame at the sight of what seems to be unmerited misery. It is to take pride in a victory won by one's comrades. It is to feel, when setting one's stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world.

-- Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Well, as Antoine mentioned, I am contributing to the building of the world.

I went to Olympic College today, by bus, by my self, and without ANY supervision.
I went there in order to attend my running start advising meeting, as well as register for fall 2006 classes.
So now I am registered for English 101-spanish 101-Math 120-and Engineering 100.
Thanks to James and Elisabeth I was able to discover which proffessors are the best, so I am satisfied with my classes.

Hmm...what else, sorry my thoughts are so unorganized.....I got my SAT scores, so that's good.

Any thing else, ...........nope, so GOODBYE!!!!
