Dude drinking and hiking fucking sucks. Unless you plan to camp out for a couple hours its a recipe for a shit show.
Yeah, it didn't work out to my advantage that day, About 2.5 miles of that hike was all uphill and I'm not in the best shape. I went on a hike in the Santa Cruz Mountains two months ago and I found the perfect vantage point to take a quick photo and a long swig, and it worked out great. But this trail was a bit more tough. The funny part was that when I finally caved in to drink a lil, about 30 yards further uphill was the ideal fucking view to take a drink at. In fact this 60 year old dude was just chilling up there, finishing a glass of some red wine, friggin' stole my idea man. Ah well, I'm sore as shit right now, but still glad I went. Nice to get away from the suburbs for a little bit.
