Hiking, Gaming and Nar
Heather, who is visiting from Arizona is someone I met because of The Guild. We were both fans and we both worked on it, me doing BTS, extra and podcasts and she being an extra. We became Facebook and Twitter friends and would see each other from time to time at Cons. This was going to be the first time we actually got to hang out one on one and spend some time together.
I planned to take her to Vasquez Rocks and go hiking, she's really into fitness stuff so I figured she's never been and it's a great place to get a good workout. We actually did a nice steady hike before attacking the iconic peak of Vasquez Rocks. I went all the way to the peak and Heather went about 2/3'ds the way up. It was a really fun two hours of hiking and climbing. We talked about everything. I really got to know Heather alot better then just a few words here and there on social media.
Afterwards I jumped online and hooked up with my buddy Chris next. We haven't been able to play LOTRO together for over a month. He's been busy with studying/work promotion test. This was the first time in ages that we were going to play together. We spent the next five hours (non-stop) questing, killing orcs and having a great time. It was a nice way to end my Saturday.
