It was one of those scorching summer day that always brought the same circumstances day in and day out. Dehydration, strokes, hyperthermia, and fevers were just some of the conditions that happen to people on a typical summer day in the Grand Canyon State. Also, weather was always a vigorous barricade that strained people from being active outside, but that would not restrain me from backpacking Camelback Mountain. I’ve heard numberless intimidating stories about people dying as well as obtaining severe injuries, but that was not about to terrify me. Today was the day that I was going to overcome my fears by hiking one of the uttermost difficult mountains in Arizona, Camelback Mountain.
One day Billy-Bob said to Luke I want to do something more challenging, so they decided to climb MT Olympus. Meanwhile in Olympus the gods did not like the idea of mortals coming to their world. The next day Billy-Bob and Luke go to Frank’s Adventure Emporium. They talked to Frank and got everything they need for their trip. He also gave them something very important a bag of wind.
This experience largely impacted my life, and made me into who I am today. At first I was dragging my feet because I was resenting going on this trip because I would have to spend an entire week up in the mountains with no electronics or makeup, two things I deeply rely on in my everyday life, surrounded by fifty
Because he like nature, Jon Krakauer would spend his free time climbing. In 1977 he began a new rote in Alaska and spend time alone in the Devils Thumb. He had a very difficult time while his climbing in the Devils Thumb. Base on his adventures climbing in 1990 he wrote the book called “ ventures Among Men and Mountains”. Few year later, after hearing about Chris Mccandless story he decided to investigate more about him and wrote the book “into the wild.
Once Sun-jo and Peak were on their way up to base camp Zopa thought it would be better for them to train so he made them walk with heavy packs on their back and climb a wall every time that they stopped. Peak knew this was so he could gain strength, but Zopa didn’t want him to do it alone so Sun-jo was dragged along. Sun-jo never complained about this and they talked and bonded the whole way to base camp. This was important in their relationship because they really got to know each other and become better friends. While Peak and Sun-jo were heading towards the summit and were almost there Peak made the executive decision to not summit and let
Many have tried to climb the beast mountain. Some have succeeded but some have also failed. But the mountain still attracts many climbers or mountaineers to this day. The people who love climbing mountains are called mountaineers. They can be professional or amateurs but as long as they love climbing mountains, they will make Everest their goal.
Before climbing hills on foot, cycling possessed my passion for a couple of years as my only activity. After one year of riding with Tim, he announced that he would be climbing Mount Rainier. My response was simple; “good luck with that.” Though I began participating on training hikes with Tim as he prepared for his colossal challenge, the two of us continued to ride on a regular basis as riding the “Seattle to Portland” Bicycle Classic remained a mutual goal. Come to find out, the two activities of riding and hiking are terrific cross-training exercise. Both activities are worthy for leg strength, the respiratory system and endurance.
Crashing is only fun if you aren’t injured, but once you crash and get injured then it’s a whole different story. In my case the crash was injure less, and I’m glad that I don’t have any broken bones…yet. As the sun rise, we rise on a Sunday morning. We, meaning the whole family, get up and start getting ready and we load the 4 wheel drive trucks with our Yamaha YZ250 bikes, Yamaha YZ125 bikes and 250 Suzuki bike. Our family ranges in bike selection but I prefer a Yamaha bike.
Chris McCandless was in his early 20’s, he was the kind of that guy that wanted to learn and experience life without all of the material things. He wanted to be independent from his parents and friends so Chris did something that would be insane for most of us humans but to him, it wasn’t. He went into the wild of Alaska for months, in fact, McCandless even thought he could make it out alive at the end of his journey. As a matter of fact, he was known as being a risk taker and enjoyed being out and about in the nature side of the world. Many would believe that Chris McCandless went into the wild to purposely kill himself; however, I myself believe that McCandless did not do it purposely.
I didn’t earn rank advancements as quickly as other troop members, and I worked on merit badges only in subjects that interested me at the time. I didn’t focus on merit badges required for the Eagle Scout Award. My dedication took off during the summer after 10th grade, when I was asked to cover for the Senior Patrol Leader during his absence at Camp Goshen. I was allowed to pick the merit badges, in which I wanted to take part, and the camp offered a large number of Eagle required badges that I could choose. I worked very hard to complete as many requirements as I could for rank advancement during that camping experience, and it broadened my outlook by challenging me to learn new things and stay on track.
