Grouse Grind

weather: sunny
outside: 20°C
mood: okay
music: Bangles - Eternal Flame

There was talk of Husband Guy and I going to do the Grouse Grind tonight after work. I'm still not sure if we're going.

From the Grouse Mountain website:

    The Grouse Grind is a 2.9 km trail leading hikers up the face of Grouse Mountain. Sometimes called "Mother Nature's Stairmaster", the trail begins at the base of Grouse Mountain and finishes at the Plateau, 1,127 metres (3,700 feet) above sea level. Although the distance travelled is not far, the terrain is rugged and the ascent has an elevation gain of 853 metres (2,800 feet) and can be as sharp as 45 degrees!

I'm not afraid of the 2-Hours-On-A-Stairmaster thing. I'm afraid of the mosquitos. I hate mosquito bites and bug bites. I'm allergic to the venom and they can smell it. My mosquito bite welts get up to 3"-4" in diametre, they hurt, itch and burn.

So, if we go, I have to head out to London Drugs for bug spray (I would link it, but their website is lame). I'd also have to go home and change.
