今天在咖啡店采访了我的GG上的第一个故事

Terence Byrne,一个75岁的白人老先生。  精干的身材,白净的皮肤,西方人的文化,说话直视你的眼睛,一字一句。   
他爬了11年的GG,今天他要爬2-3次。  他最多的记录是一天8次,去年在Mutiple GG Day 他爬了7次。

i went to GG early morning at 6aM TODAY.  I have a timer and also I have GG App.  I use the timer first , and it only got a short BEE. Usually after short bee follow a long bee sound.   and the person before me also was doubting if the timer works because he heard only a short bee too.   

So, I want double insurance for I have APP.  

AS I trying to retreat to the outside of the gate where the App starts, two white skin women right away got excited.   

stay tuned!

one woman wear orange top whose size is almost double as mine said : "no! You cannot do that ! That's cheating !"  And another 1.5 size as mine in gray top said :"yes ,you cannot do that ! It's cheating " .  They behaved like they just had caught a thief !   and the orange said :"what's your name ?" As if she is a policeman !  I hate it !  It's ridiculous ! But I am too Chinese that I told her my name though I really hate it .   I want to explain why I want to use App after I used the timer ,but they told me that the net was not working today and the timer would not work ,and they them self use APP instead of timer , but they just would not permit me to use the APP for I already used the timer .  They keep saying it is cheating !     Oh , my god !

I could not laugh ,neither could I cry .   For the way they think is ridiculous to me . But the way they behaved like they are the worriers of Grouse grind which is my love too.

听上去很不友好,下次碰到这种情况建议想一想告诉她们

***I do not like your judgmental comments
***I have reason to use both timer and app as I thought timer might be not working this time.
***It is up to Grouse Mountain to make a better timer/app to avoid confusing.

"Ok", I finally was defeated by two of them . I give up to further explain ,because people are unreasonable when they make up their mind .  I am not a good fighter in Chinese , nevertheless in English .  "I do not use APP ! Ok ?! ". I guess if I do not say that they would keep watching at me for that is totally intolerable for them if I "cheat" .    So, now I start walking and they start walking too .  

If I could walk faster ,I want beat them with speed .   But ...... They are wolves and I am still a sheep after 2 and half years .  Could I be a wolf one day ?

谢谢Lulu和Gordon的夸奖 !   说说我为什么开始用英文说书。    那天我上班休息时间,手机在上面充电,没东西玩了,就去玩那台单位的我好久没碰的电脑。  突然就想写那天的那个我本来不想写的故事。    但是单位的电脑没有中文大字,于是我就用英文写。   写完第一段。   后来就觉得试试用英文写的感觉也很不错。  于是就变成现在这样说英文书了。 我做事都很随意的,也很冲动。   冲动来了,我往往都是要去做的。  一直都是这样。

I got to the top , swept the time card ,still only heard one short bee,no long bee.   One of our classmates told me that I am in the nearest mountain to Everest .  It seems like I only need another 8 or 9 climbs to be on Everest .   So,I was interested in the game .  Wa! it's only could be a dream for me to be on the Everest .  So, being on the Everest in a game could be fun.    So, today the one climb do matters to me .   

I went into the hall , look for my name one that screen that shows everyone's time .   My name was not there .  And there's only 4-5 people's name on the screen .  The orange and the gray were just near me .   So, I said :" see, I have no time ".they said it's because the net did not work .   I said "because you guys did not allow me to use the app " .  They said "no, you cannot use both, it's cheating."  I said " cheating for what ?  " they said :" you will get 2 counts while actually you only climbed one " .  The orange said :" I check your record , your record shows that one day you have two times while actually you only did one .  The one you use timer show your name in small letter while the another one you use App shows your name in big letter . That's why I know you cheated once ."   I said " I was not cheating same as I am not cheating today .  ".   She still kept saying those kind of ........ So ,I just show her that I was not listening . And at last I said " it's just an excercise !  ".   

Later they came to talk to me again that I can ask the worker to try to find my today's time .  I said "no, I do not need it . It's easy for me to do one more time than to find my time .  And actually I will do another two times today .  And I did 8 times in one day ."  Then the orange became friendly to me and told me :" you should participate in the multiple GG day" . I said : " NO, thanks .  But I will do it when I am ready for 11times !"

第二次比第一次有一点点进步,还是没有进60,其实体力是不如第一次,但快一点的诀窍是全程没有停下,没有喝一滴水,把体力全消耗了,反正一会不再爬了。下回第一爬如果能做到不停留,不喝水,也许能进60。 今天看来还是没有运用好策略。请各位大侠指正!

以上是66岁的David LUO 今天爬了两次GG--62分钟和61分52秒 后自己的总结。   

我刚被人逮住“Cheating”。, 这个David老将今天又在为进升60分钟之列而苦苦奋斗。   很多中国人都在国内为金子房子妻子妾子孩子奋斗,我们为这一年花掉我们130个大洋的GG奋斗。  谁比谁更傻?   

David! 2年半前我刚出道不久,第一次认识这个人,他给了我太深刻的印象 Stay Tuned!

想当年,俺刚出道不久,大部队去Baker那里爬山。  那时候俺还没有Lulu夫妻快,那两夫妻那时候属于快队,俺跟不住,俺只在龙尾巴部位混。 老将David 自告奋勇殿后。   被殿后的也是David。  为方便起见我们就叫他David2 。    一路开走都很Boring,在树线里走,什么景色都见不到。  终于到了一个小瀑布,于是,大家当它是稀奇宝贝,争抢着拍照。  快队的以速度为乐,慢队的就破瓶子破摔,也借着景拍照偷懒。  历朝历代都如此。  上个朝代如此,本朝代如此,未来的朝代也躲不过。

大家在小瀑布那里搞各种把戏,殿后的和被殿后的2 David 就到了。  一会儿我就看见David 2 在 羊肠小道别一个小晃荡, 还好他稳住了,要不摔下去也真不是好玩的。  我心里就想: 这是个危险分子,俺离他远点。  

那时候Lulu定了最后的折返时间,3点或是4点俺记不清了。  俺也到了顶。  然后大家就都下撤了。  下撤途中遇见还想往上爬的David 2 。  无奈他只能下撤。  

俺刚出道的时候思想还比较革命。  总认为殿后是最光荣的事情。  一心要努力做个殿后的报答Lulu的付出。   渐渐的思想就被腐化了,现在偶尔很不情愿地垫一次后。   

当初的时候,没经验,就不知道老Hiker有老Hiker的是处,即便他们有时候爬的很慢。  当初的时候俺不知道等人你可以在某些位置等,不必非得跟在人家脚后跟看他小孩似的怎么走路。

不过话说回来,如果不是因为当初俺菜菜鸟一点经验没有,非要盯着David2 怎么下山, 俺今天也不会说这个书。   

那一次给他殿后之后,我是看见David2 能躲就躲。  

他怎么下山的? 且听下回分解。

话说大部队到顶后就开始各个施展独家绝技飞奔下雪山。  想当年俺下山的时候就开始精力特别旺盛,不管是雪山还是不是雪山都喜欢飞奔而下。  也许经过两年的折腾膝盖是有点不如从前了,也许是心理作用,当初初出牛犊不怕虎,一点不懂,无知者无畏,所以膝盖仿佛也强壮的很。   现在开始有知有觉,于是跑不起来了。   

大家都走了,天也马上快黑起来了,就剩下David2 一个人了。  我就不放心他一个人在最后了。 于是我就给他殿后。  

David 遇见几个老外跟他询问什么,他就停下来很耐心地和他们说话。 我心急啊。  .......   我就喊他快走。  他下雪山很慢,很小心, 那坡越来越陡,他就得横着脚下, 这样下当然比脚直着下累很多。 于是没过多久他就累的有点不行了。  开始的时候我叫他象我一样滑,他怕滑,他好像也试了,感觉不好,所以他不滑,到后来他腿走累了,他就开始学我的样子滑, 那雪滑不太动,得用手杖一推一推的推滑。   没多久他这样也滑累了。  最后我看见他脸朝下爬下来。  我这辈子就见这一次有人这样下雪山的。   

天都已经蒙蒙黑了。 我到不知道我们两个人是不是会迷路。  下完陡坡就看见Lulu他们在等我们。  后来走那较平的羊肠小道David倒是一点不慢,因为天黑了,大家就赶紧赶路,头灯也用上了,这是我唯一的一次赶路用头灯。   

在看见David 出山的时候,那是他开始要圆他的Ridge美梦。

去年2月份,经过一年半的不断锻炼,我们的泥腿也慢慢开始变成钢筋水泥腿了。 开始和原来让我们闻风丧胆的小猫小麦小心翼翼的靠近。 于是就有了第一次的雪山Panorama Ridge 之行。  那中间一直都没见David 2 出来参加活动过。  

小猫开召集帖的时候,我们还是不敢和她们快队同行,于是报名的时候我们就说我们是慢队。  

David 2 就突然冒出来了,他说有慢队,他要求参加慢队。 还说,迷你猫这次我们再一起走。

吓得我赶紧缩进头。 马上宣称: 本次活动没有慢队。

昨天龙同学爬了五次GG。  我刚才在菜场买菜,看见我队伍前面的一个80岁左右的老太太篮子里购了约5-6斤的菜。我想这对于她也够厉害的。  于是我就开始和她搭讪。  

她88岁,她先生89岁。  周五他们刚爬了Dam Mt 。 当然是坐缆车上去的。  过两天他们要去Garibaldi Lake。   他们30-40的时候经常背50磅的大包走没有路的路。 最高的山爬过的是BC省最高的山好像是叫wardingTon 什么的。   可能我没听清楚。 但她说是BC省最高的山不会错。   

问她:您膝盖有过问题吗?  她笑笑,用诚实的态度对我说:有。  但她说:不管它,照爬。  有时候不得不找物理师进行治疗。  

最后她对我说:Keep going!

但是,那天David 还是来了。  我们快队的拔腿就开始你追我赶,David就后面自己一个人走。 我们上了顶,听说David到了Meadow就回转了。 所以他没有实现上Ridge的愿望。 因为迷你猫没有奉献精神。

一年以后,再次看见David出山是在GG群里,我记得他第一次再现的时候他说他GG爬了67分钟。   想当初我们爬进70分钟也是费了九牛二虎之力的。  想必他这一年一定是进深山老林苦练功夫去了。  然后,就看见他在群里表示他的梦想……Ridge。   迷你猫再次没有奉献精神呢。  自己偷偷去了一趟没让David知道。 还是坚决要躲着他呢。   自我批判!      

后来,军师揭竿起义,挑战一日双峰,从者众,以致派生两峰队,拔牙不怕痛队,只上Ridge不屑黑牙队。   终于David找到了他的上Ridge实现他66岁理想的队伍。 他上了Ridge的顶! 而且看到了迷你猫上了八次都没看到的半化的Garibaldi 湖!   

我知道David的下一个目标是GG突破60分钟。  凭他的毅力他一定可以的!

谢谢你的激将法,60分钟GG我今年是一定要破的。可惜这几天没有去爬GG,倒是抽空去了一趟Sloquet野温泉然后再爬Joffre 三个湖。6月底7月份要出远门,8月中要走WCT,我就把GG60分的目标定在9月和10月吧。我最近连续爬几次GG的体会是爬其他山的时候体力明显增加了不少,同样是爬Ridge,现在爬比一年前爬要感觉轻松多了,尽管我已经又老了一些。所以对我来说增加体能是第一重要,提高速度则次之。
