Timpanogas Date

So, seeing as I haven't been on a date since Christmas I had to get this take from my vault of weird dates I've been apart of. This date was with a boy that I had been on a few dates with. He said we were going to go on a hike with some of his friends and their girlfriends. He said we were going to hike Mt. Timpanogas. If you aren’t familiar with this hike there are two sides. The front side is nice and paved and leads to some caves. Then there’s the back side. A straight up hike from you know where. In my mind, I thought we were going to be doing the nice paved one, because that’s all I had ever done. So being the nice girl I am, I packed a little back pack of two water bottles and two granola bars; one for each of us. I was certain that would be enough until we got back down from the hike. Anyway, homeboy came to get me early the next morning and we drive to the place and that’s where I learned that we would be hiking the backside of Mt. Timpanogas. I had zero idea what I was getting myself into.
About 5 hours into the hike I was worn out. I had already had my water bottle and eaten my granola bar. The girls that had come along were babies. They stopped every five minutes because they were too tired. I was quickly becoming annoyed and just wanted to get to the top so I  just went on my own. And in another two hours I made it to the top. I waited for my guy to get to the top and we sat there for about 15 minutes and decided we weren’t waiting for anyone else and we got up and literally ran down the mountain. It took 3 hours to get down the hill running which brings us to a whopping 10 hours of hiking. Because my date was the one who drove everyone we had to wait for the rest of the group we had to wait in his car. And to add the cherry on top of this 10 hour ordeal, while we waited in his car the guy realized his tank was on empty so we couldn’t turn his car on for heat. By the time I got home I was frozen, hungry and grumpy. Needless to say, I haven’t done that hike since then.
