4 hours in hockley

me, onions and everhard managed to get our arses out on the trail from the 5th line around 10:15. not bad by pylon standards - only 15 minutes behind schedule. and speaking of pylon rules, onions was pushing regulation 3, substandard g of the code by wearing tights on the last allowed day - tomorrow shorts are mandatory. naturally i was in shorts, and everhard donned his just cuz he was afraid not to!

nice little downhill to begin, and then we climbed, and climbed, and climbed. made it to the 15th in under 50min this time, and snapped this shot at the end of someone's driveway - silly onions!

nooo - it's not that steep ...

really kool shot just off the 15th ...

we made it to the top of hockley in about an hour - i can't remember exactly - and headed down toward the road. the trilliums are up !!!!

one of the many creeks ...

as usual, i was the slowest, but the guys waited for me on hockley road ...

we checked out the new section, went through the golf course, over the ski hill, and finally the last 'block' before the 5th. man what a beauty day!

i did my fucking burpees - 50 of them - just before the final climb. neither of the guys offered to do them with me ...

and then, up the big hill to the cars. just under 4 hours with close to 6000' climbing!

i've said it before, and i'll say it again ...

I LOVE HOCKLEY !!!

  2. Nice pics! (Good gawd the burpees!)

    I just went back to read your bear mtn report. Pretty inspiring yet scary. Anyway, in flipping through all your posts, it struck me how you really cram a LOT of fun stuff into a year!!
