MissSeven and Mr12 went hiking today with their day camp to Rattlesnake Ridge and had a very nice time, they reported to me on the drive back home. I approve of their hiking at Rattlesnake Ridge or even Cobra Cliff or Adder Avalanche-Prone-Zone, as it is infinitely preferable to staying home and arguing about Nintendo chargers. Mr12 continued on to tell me that one child in their group had nearly fallen into a 15' crevasse, but avoided sure injury at the last second and lived to probably argue about videogame paraphernalia at his own home this evening.

Me: Please be careful when you are hiking, OK? Don't do any silly stuff and get dead.

Mr12: Oh, we won't die like that! We are only going to die from either old age, grave illness, or some psycho killer!
