Last night @bensasso and I watched Return of the Jedi and then after reminiscing about old TV shows, ended up watching the first episode of Lizzie Mcguire. Yup, were nerds but we make a good nerd pair I think.
Spenser & I have been hanging out under El Cap a lot the past few months, and we've come to a couple conclusions: El Cap is big and cars suck.
"El Capitan is so big that our problems become equally small; they nearly disappear. It’s as though we’re all unified by the challenge of understanding the absurdly big thing in front of us. Tourists will approach and ask one or two of the “standard questions*,” and more often than not we will wind up standing next to each other in silence. Had the inventors of our language, the Shakespeares and the Websters and the like, visited Yosemite Valley, we might have the lexicon to discuss it properly. Or not…its bigness may have overwhelmed our wordsmiths as well."
But a problem has upstaged even the magnitude of El Cap: Valley traffic. You might have heard that there's talk of creating a shuttle system. And that there was push back against it, citing "buses are socialism and cars are free choice." Though we both feel this statement is simply too stupid to pick apart - we'll add that in our experience, having a car in the Valley this summer has felt more like a trap than free choice. What do you guys think about it all? Link to full post in profile. British climber on the Great Roof on the Nose. #yosemite#elcap
It’s amazing some of the views I get to appreciate while laying in bed in the Sprinter. A special shoutout to @sleepdouglas for the amazing sleeps I get every night thanks to their amazingly comfortable and cooling memory foam mattress. If you live in Canada, I highly recommend checking them out. #testimonial
