Mount Rogers Backpacking Trip

On the morning of Friday, November 19th the sun was shining as the Outdoor Pursuits crew loaded up a van for a weekend of backpacking along the Appalachian Trail in Virginia. The group arrived at the trailhead at dusk and quickly set off for the first campsite. Friday night the temperatures were a little colder than anticipated as we set up camp by flashlight under the bright southern stars. As we ate dinner, we were treated to a show of stealth bombers flying low overhead in what seemed to be a training exercise.



Day two of the trip began with high winds putting our tents to the test and we worked together to break camp without letting anything blow away. Encounters with the area’s famous wild ponies lightened the mood as we pushed on toward our destination. The sun peaked through clouds on a few occasions, adding some much appreciated warmth to the climb toward the summit of Mount Rogers. We made it to the highest point in the state of Virginia for a nice relaxing lunch, enjoying the fruits of our labor at 5,729 ft. above sea level.


The weather had improved by the time we reached our second campsite, and the nearly full moon rose above us as we told jokes and ate some delicious snacks around the campfire. Everyone slept much better the second night because we had all worked hard and it was such a calm and peaceful night.




Our second campsite was still a decent day’s hike from the van, so we had little time to waste as we packed up on the final day. There was, however, plenty of time for a trailside lunch, photos of the spectacular views along the way, and a lot of laughs before we wrapped up the last Outdoor Pursuits backpacking trip of 2010.






Tuesday, November 23, 2010

This past weekend Outdoor Pursuits hopped in the wagon and scooted on down to the Red River Gorge of Kentucky. Along the way, we made a pit-stop at Hillbilly Hotdogs in West Virginia, where the brave few try to demolish the Home-wrecker, a 15 pound hotdog, loaded with toppings.

It was a beautiful weekend, with the rain holding off until Sunday. We woke up Saturday and set out for a day at the crag. With good weather in our hands, we climbed all day. Everyone got to climb something that they enjoyed.

Sunday we awoke to a bit of rain, but we didn’t let that hold us back. We climbed in areas where the rain couldn’t get to. It was a great way to spend the weekend, with a rad group of people. Hope to see you guys next time!

Coopers Rock Trip Review


On Tuesday OP and some students took advantage of the class free day to go work some boulders at Coopers Rock WV. It was early and cold Tuesday morning when we packed up the van and started our trip to go climb for the day. Arriving to a awesome fall day at Coopers Rock couldnt have been better. Everyone had their eyes set on some problems that they wanted to climb. The climbing started at a gnarly V5 cleverly named helicopter while others climbed a classic V3 called Moby's Dick. Everyone climbed until there tips were purple. We left at night after several hours of some awesome climbing and headed to The Black Bear Burrito. The burritos were awesome and everyone was ready to head home. Stomachs full of burritos, we packed into the van a interesting ride back to hocking. This trip was a great one and I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who came and I cant wait for another adventure.

Climbing Club Athens Bouldering Trip Review




On Oct 20th we packed up the van and climbing club went to Athens to crush on some local rock. We set off for the Trailer Park area to intruduce our participants to some problems they have never worked before.
Our first stop was the birds nest area everyone was eager to get on Tarzan a V4 and on Birds Nest another V4. We worked our fingers until it was night fall and everyone sent a problem they wanted or put a new boulder on there list. The crew hiked out of the woods to get some grub at some local burrito spots. It was a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon and cant wait to do another one.

Mustach March Results


Well Mustach March has come and gone and scarred a few souls in the process. Some have learned that folicle freedom is a ability to be cherished, while others have learned or been told by friends and family that they should never try to attempt such a feat again.

We raised $60 and collected 41 food items weighing in at 46 pounds totals from entry fees and voting donations. This is all being donated to the Athens County Food Pantry.

Here is a recap of the divisions:

Divisions:
Best of Show: The name basically sums it up. This award is reserved for the most spectacular specimen produced over the course of the month. This is utterly subjective to the judge's personal opinion, no matter how revealing that may be.
Most Disturbing: When you look at this mustache, goosebumps will appear in places you didn't know you had follicles. If you saw a layman on the street with this mustache, you'd warn other peoples children about this man.
Most Fitting: Sometimes the stars align and a man becomes something... more, with a mustache. This award is given to the mustache that makes a man greater than the sum of his otherwise wholly inadequate parts.
Dirtlip Award
: The little follicles that couldn't. The recipient of this award can only take solace in the fact that this is all for charity.
Pre-Existing Condition Class:
This is an wholly separate class reserved for the few, proud men who choose to wear a mustache every day of their glorious lives. Members of this class are not required to shave their existing mustaches on March 1st, but they are subject to rule #2 listed above. There is only one award for this class, and members of this class are not eligible for any other award categories. Members of this class are encouraged to go for "trick" points as their thick, luxurious, upper-lip base has long been established.
Fakie: Mustache March is all about equal opportunity humiliation. This Award is for the Ladies. Buy or make your best follicle creation and wear it loud and proud on April 1st during the main event for live judging. No animals may be harmed in the creation of your test piece!

And here were the Rules:

The Rules:
Mustache March Rules:
1. All registered participants must be clean-shaven on March 1st, unless they are competing in the pre-existing condition class.
2. Facial hair of any variety is allowed until March 15th, after which point only a mustache is allowed. A mustache is defined as an island of hair that is at least 1cm (root to root) from the nearest body of facial hair. A mustache is an island. Get it? No isthmuses or peninsulas allowed.
3. Registered participants who shave off their mustache prior to judging, or those who refuse to obey to the "island" rule after March 15th are disqualified.

4. Participants will be subjected to a minimum of 2 photographs (before and after) during the course of Mustache March for documentation/humiliation purposes. Additional photography will be solicited. It is highly recommended that you comply to this solicitation for humiliation purposes.
5. Members wishing to compete for the Fakie Award must be present on April 1st at 4pm.



And the Results:

"Best of Show" went to the Student Center own Nate Perez with fine showing of follicle dominance.

"Most Fitting" went to Dan Yancey with a look that could start a revolution, a Mustache Revolution.

"Most Disturbing" was a tie. Believe it or not there were two individuals in this competition that should have not have been allowed to participate. Not because they couldn't grow a stache, but because there attempts at "Stachation" were so traumatic to the general public we have decide to have our legal department draft a contact. Contract states that, these two individuals will never attempt to abuse their upper lip again. Oh, by the way these two are Ian Brown and Joey Stansfield.

"Dirt Lip" went to Justin Snyder with the little follicles that just couldn't. We have encouraged him to train hard in the off season and come back next year.

"Pre - Existing" went to David Breland. It must be known that this field was very limited, we would love to see more Mustache displayed in this category next season. Because these are the individuals who truly challenge social norms and wear their Staches like a badge of honor.

"Fakie" We were very disapointed that no one showed up with a fake display of upper lip hair.

Lastly we would like to give a shout out of thanks to all 30+ individuals that competed in Mustach March and helped the Athens County Food Pantry.

Until next year, let follicle freedom ring.

Photos from the Finale can be found one our Facebook page along with photos from throughout the competition.

Hot and Nasty Spring Break Adventure Pt. 1

While many college students across the country hit the beach in search of who knows what, a group of us from Hocking headed inland for Spring Break. Early Sunday morning six of us met at the student center to load up and get a move on. We were headed for the fabled rock of the Midwest. We filled the trailer, hopped in the van, and took off for the country's interior.

After a few hours drive we found ourselves in Louisville, Ky. We stopped for a quick round of disc golf in the rain. While it wasn't pouring we had a bad feeling about this precipitation and what it might mean for the rest of our climbing pilgrimage. We stopped again somewhere in Indiana at one of those huge truck stops with the fast food inside. Some grabbed the ever gut wrenching T-Bell while I chose the more user friendly Subway. This would prove to be a mistake.

When I ordered my sandwich the girl behind the counter asked me if I would like double meat and a free cookie. I said yes to the free cookie not realizing that I needed the extra proteins to get the oatmeal raisin treat. There was a long moment of confusion between us about it which I thought was caused by my lack of sleep. This would prove to be untrue. There were a few other instances of supreme confusion during the toasted or untoasted section of my transaction as well as the veggie portion. Now it's time for sauce. I asked politely for Chipotle Southwest. Her response was simply, "Great Job".

Now I'm not sure if it's just the boredom induced by growing up in Truckstop, Indiana or if it was some inside joke that I didn't get, but this was more than I could handle. I paid quickly and left so as to avoid the panic attack I could feel swelling up inside me. I sat my sandwich on the table and announced to the group that, "ordering that sandwich nearly killed me". They all erupted into laughter. When I told them the story they were nearly in tears. This puzzled me until I found out that Eric had just minutes before relayed a similar story to the group. So thank you Indiana for all the fun and laughs. Lets never do that again.

After a quick check of the weather it became apparent that SoIll would be soaked and we decided to head straight for Arkansas. Things would soon spiral into a new realm of funny/weird/ridiculous/confusing. For more than a few hours we drove through rain of all kinds. I think Forrest Gump said it best, "We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain... and big ol' fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night... ". Then the rain cleared and we arrived in Springfield, Mo.

We had stopped for a Wal-mart run. We needed supplies and this was the last vestige of hope to get them. We spent some time in the store picking out food and looking at things we might need. We loaded it all in the trailer and hopped back in the van. Tim noticed something was under our windshield wiper and Dan grumbled something about hating it when people do that. Tim pulled it out and quickly realized that it was not some dumb flyer.

Upon examination he revealed to us a note. It was written by some girls that we had seen in the store. It asked us what band we were in and that we should hit them up on facebook. We laughed for a good while and decided to take pictures, those will come soon, I assure you. So now with our food and gear stowed we hit the road for Arkansas.

When we got to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch there was several inches of snow on the ground. We were worried to say the least. It was 3am, we were tired, and there was snow. things weren't looking good.

Hot and Nasty Spring Break







Arkansas Climbing Trip

It’s about time we start talking about our spring break trip. We have planned the most bodacious climbing vacation your minds can handle. Were headed to the Ozark Mountains to get aggro and send some sicky gnar gnar routes. On the way we’ll make a stop in SoIll and get nasty on Jason Kehl’s hometown pebbles.

We will leave on Sunday, March 21st at 9am sharp from the student center. After crossing Ohio and navigating the plains of Indiana we will find ourselves immersed in the gritty sandstone of Southern Illinois. After a night of listless sleep we will rise with the sun(O.K., not with the sun, but sometime after) and get to slapping the stone. We will spend that night there in SoIll.

The next morning will encompass a drive through Missouri and into the heart of the Ozarks. Upon arrival in Arkansas we will brace ourselves for the treacherous curves and steep hills that lead us to the Mid-western promised land called Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. This area was made famous by climbers like Chris Sharma and Fed Nicole in more than a handful of climbing videos.

HCR, or the Shoe as it’s known by locals, boasts the best climbing between the divides. Everything from 5.6 and V0 al the way to V15 and 5.14a. So no matter where your skills lie, you can find it here in Arkansas. While there we may hit up another great spot, Sam’s Throne. This is a great sandstone and limestone area about 30 min from the Shoe.

I highly recommend this trip to the climbers that want to climb in the most beautiful place in America. To the ones that want the most aesthetic lines. To those that just want a rad experience. As someone that learned to climb in Arkansas I can assure you, this place will meet, exceed, and destroy any expectations you may have.

Now for logistics. There are two ways you can get on this trip. Both of which you must go through Tim Rice in SC202 to accomplish. You can either:
a) Take this awesome trip for the low cost of $200.
b) Take this rad adventure as a class and use financial aid.

Which ever you decide, you must see Tim Rice. He is the Gate Keeper and you are not Sigourney Weaver.

Included in the cost is:
All your camping and climbing fees.
2 meals a day. With the exception of food eaten while in transit.
Gas to get there.
Use of Outdoor Pursuits Equipment.
