The poke was not aimed at you specifically. But making Princeton into the boogerman just don't hunt with my dogs. It's a mountain, but a very easy one at that. You can get hurt on any mountain, or get caught in weather or by dark or by any other objective danger, usually but not always due to bad judgement. But the big P didn't do it to you. You made a mistake and you learned from it. That's how experience works.

I'm sorry Auggie. You're right. Deuce stands corrected.

The Big P is a badass mountain full of bad mojo and evil twilight zone currents of danger from another dimension. These currents emanate from the radio towers and ancient bristlecone pine forest where the evil faeries live.

That forest real, and is cool and worth visiting if you're not scared take the risk. It's on the ridge to the west and has some trees that are 1800 years old.

Ah, I didn't read it that way. I just saw it as HighPilgrim answering for Deuce, saying that he stands corrected.
