Prepare to come in your Speedo.

It's back. The most important OTL trip of the year. Where? Mt. Baldy. When? THIS SATURDAY!!! Why?Destiny.

This is a 8 to 12 mile roundtrip dayhike where all men are required to wear Speedos (or briefs if you cant find a Speedo... the rolled up boxer look is a little diaper-ish but also acceptable) and all women are required to wear a two piece bathing suit.  Moustaches and german accents are recommended, as are hiking boots with high socks, sunglasses, and fanny packs.  It also wouldn't hurt to love gunther and chainsmoke lucky strikes.

It'll probably take 3-4 hours to get up, an hour to dance around and take photos on top, and two hours back down. Plus another hour of driving and being inefficient. We usually get back around 4-5 PM.

SUNSCREEN is a necessity.  If you don't have it, you will turn into Zack Mattler (2nd degree burns, woo!). Multiple applications, seriously. Everyone must also bring two liters of water. A snack would also be advisable (maybe grab a bagel and an apple from the dining hall).

Transportation is usually tough for this trip, so get your friends with cars to come.  If you have a car, please email me so we can figure out how many spots we have.  We want everyone to come. 

Also, please e-mail me if you have any kind of loud, portable music that you'd be willing to bring.
