I have officially been awake for 30 hours streight now. Why? Because I'm nuts, most likely. But in all reality it is because I needed to get up early (3:00 am-ish) to go climb a mountain, so I decided to just not go to sleep. I guess it has worked out, but not perfetly. Let's see what I've learned today.
-I've learned a new meaning to 'cold'. Cold is when the drinking tube in your backpack freezes solid, preventing hydration. Cold is taking off a pair of gloves to expose another pair of gloves so that you can have some dexerity. Cold is being excited when your toes hurt because it means you can feel them again. When I spent 6 hours in 'Cold', I returned to my car, shed layers, and was warm in my car, without the heater on, and I could see my breath.
-I've learned that blogging is really hard to do after being awake for 30 hours.
-I've learned that when you're trying to be sneaky somewhere where people are sleeping, and you think there is no way you can get any louder, someone will send you a text message.
_I've learned that underscores are kinda cool... that's it, I'm losing it. I'ma go to bed, but I leave you will some cool pictures of this mornings adventures into the cold.
