From tMail:
Wow Bad Boy did not let down this year. My weekend started with a late departure on Friday night to pick up the money man G-$$$ I think we arrived at the Chateau around 10pm. Quickly set up came and went to bed. Saturday we woke up fairly early everyone was doing there own thing getting ready eating talking. There didn't seem to be too much talk about the hike despite the Category 2 Hurricane winds predicted. We hiked as a strong group all sticking together and then breaking up in Heather's Crotch...once at the normal stop to change before treeline a group of 3-4 of us departed MPM, BW (Bob Warren), myself and MD.

We got blasted by the winds...crawling on hands and knees at times... I am going to cut to the chase to the I heard it on the Weekend of Bad Boy:

  1. Johnny B saying lets go easy today hiking.

  2. My urine is already the color of rust in the vistor center's bathroom.
  3. I hate Heather's Crotch
  4. I am losing my fingers and toes (Little Richie)
  5. DUDE...want some fish and cheese..
  6. You ready, I am ready, ready lets go.
  7. The following is dialogue somewhere on Bad Boy...None of this feels rights, Johnny you know where we are? No I can't see anything. MPM, "I think we are okay". Tmail, "We are to low", Roland, "Lets go up"...10 minutes later. Tmail, "Still doesn't feel right". MPM, "We are good I can see something". We all take a hard right go straight up and like magic the Key Hole.
  8. Tmail to MPM..."We are going to get BLASTED"
  9. Running this morning with Spungie and Johnny B...Johnny B says "I hope nobody got offended by my drinking"
  10. Roland was hunkered down behind some rocks and says "I saw people get blown over and bodies all over the trail I thought people were getting shot"
  11. The sounds of train running over my body...I heard that about 100 times.
  12. Can I throw my ice ax at you?
  13. Want to see me do a naked belly flop?
  14. Spanky, "that's OUR dog"
  15. She is a Buffalo
  16. "We ran out of that beer" bartender at Cougar Liar
  17. "BAD BOY"
From Mutha: Extraordinary Mountain Moments
  1. Feeling relieved on the Lion's Head trail along the ravine that the winds were blowing out of and away from the ravine.
  2. Being picked up and relocated 6 inches to starboard by a big gust.
  3. Feeling disconcerted that 100m later the winds were blowing directly into the ravine.
  4. Standing w/ g-$$$ in the upper snowfields, looking around in all directions and seeing nothing but uniform grey. It was like floating in milk.
  5. Watching sand-like ice driving along the surface of the snow like flowing water.
  6. Being nipple-deep in spruce-traps below the lower snow-fields.
  7. Taking out the North-South Magnetic Perspective Redirector and magnetically redirecting my perspective.
  8. Barebooting down Heather's.
