This post is for Claire – because it’s her birthday tomorrow and I know (like all of us) she would like to be reminded how time flies. I’m sure she would also love to see this video over again (but then maybe not).
The video is low res because in those ancient days (almost 10 years ago) not that many people had enough internet bandwidth to stream HD so I only made a lo-res version. It was also made to amuse our grandson Jasper – not necessarily to amuse anyone else (but I still find it amusing).
This video shows a number of things. One thing it shows is Claire’s intrepid spirit – continuing on with adversity. It also says something about the other hikers who had with them: duct tape, electrical tape and string. I don’t know where the oversized sock came from.
Ron and Claire invited me on a hike with their paddler’s club: Strathcona Park – trailhead Mount Washington. It would be a day-long hike starting early in the morning and ending with a great deal of fatigue in my case in the late afternoon. Somewhere along the way, Claire realized that the bottom of one of her hiking shoes was falling literally off the shoe. Here is the video link: CLAIRE’S SHOE.
Below are some stills from that hike as well.
