In Their Words
  • As I'm sure most people know by now, there's not always a lot going on at campus or around the small town of Northfield to do. After a while, things start to get kind of boring and routine, and you just want something different than the norm. As I'm also sure most people know, there's a mountain nearby called Paine Mountain. Let me just preface this by saying that I hate(d) hiking. I would refuse any kind of hiking offer I got, because I don't understand the joy of huffing and puffing through nature. But in an effort to get out of our daily mundane routines, the roomie and I decided to go for a sunset hike. I won't lie- I was pleasantly surprised.

    Over the weekend we did a lot of rappelling, ascending and lanes to work on our skills. The first year trainees earned their blackhats (a symbol of being in the company), and the level 2 candidates earned their ram's head device (a symbol of a technical assault climber). It had rained all weekend, so needless to say I was cold and wet, but that doesn't stop MCW from having fun!
