If we survive the Mayan Apocalypse

Postby DeucesWild » Tue Dec 04, 2012 2:16 pm

Would you change anything? Would you live larger knowing that you escaped THE BIG ONE?

Here's what I'd change:

1) Be better prepared for the Next Apocalypse, probably the Zombie one.
2) Get my nest egg in better order, i.e. more investing in my funds (you should too).
3) Quit dropping everything to help Ace out of his various hoosegaws.
4) Fewer snowflake jokes (nearer my god to thee conclusion).
5) Find me a new and improved squeeze who drinks beer and will put up with the old man. And Ace.
6) Try and keep Kafka off the internet.
Snowflakes, Uber Alles!

We should celebrate it on top of a 14er!
Midnight, 12-21-12.

Which one?

I have been doomsday prepping for years, assuming it's an ice age.

I love #5. I take it your tired of the old one? I hope she doesn't read your post or she may do the same...

I heard something about Deuce is going to tell everyone who he actually is if we're all still here on December 22. :wink:
"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

Now it all makes sense...

We're all going to survive the Mayan apocalypse. Remember Zombieland? Rule 1: Cardio. I'd say climbers have an edge on the rest of the country...
There's a fine line between being a badass and being a dumbass.

I really wonder who honestly looks at the concept of snowshoeing, and thinks, "that looks like fun!" Under no circumstance is snowshoeing "fun." And that's why man invented skis.

Go out with each and every 14er member that's active. Originally, I was going to say all the single girls here, but that wasn't my point. It would be fun to go out with each and everyone of all of you personally, learn about you, become friends, climb a bit. It would be great to expand my friendship so I knew each and everyone of you.

Yea, it sounds mushy and stuff. But, I think it would be great to personally know all of you.
I believe there's something to be said for exploring beautiful places. It's good for the spirit. David Scott

take the road less traveled. You might learn something about yourself.
