In high school I think I was voted most likely to never go on a date. Or maybe it was most likely to talk only to people he knows. Either way, I wasn't really known for being outgoing and meeting people.
I'm not sure that's really changed that much, but I've been on at least one date and Eric hikes with me so I've met one person.
But put me behind a computer and I can be amazingly social. I'm even funny and witty and deep and meaningful. So much so more than 700 people follow me on Twitter. I know! Totally bogus! I've been able to meet people that way.
In March I met up with two climbers from Twitter for Humphrey's Peak.
This time I played guide to Matt, the other half of the In Ice Axe We Trust podcast. (Remember? I had guest appearances there for Glacier Peak and Humphrey's Peak?)
He's been up Mailbox before so clearly he's not that smart. Now he lives on the East Coast, but was back for a visit. Mailbox put on quite the show. Cold. Windy. Icy (in mid April). No views. Generally lousy. Classic Mailbox. I don't think even Treen had a good time.
Matt claims to have had a good time. Eric is always crazy so he had a good time. Don't tell anyone, but I didn't have a terrible time. It's amazing how much good company accounts for. Still, it'd have been better if it'd been like last weekend.
