Mast Climbing

Have you ever been in the situation where the anchor light on your mast burns out, and you have no idea how you're going to get to the top of the mast to change it? Me neither. But Eric has.

The choice for this mission was obvious. We needed someone who was not only light enough to hoist up there in a chair tied to a rope, we also needed someone whose parents probably wouldn't miss him.
Also in the criteria was someone drunk enough to actually do this, but sober enough to change a light bulb. Enter Mike.
"Ha ha. Sucker." Actually, I was ruled out in the "light enough" stage, and Blair doesn't know a light bulb from a beer can.
Mike looks pretty comfortable as he neared the top of the 30 foot mast.
I think Mike was just happy to finally be the tallest of the group.
"Wow. Better him than me!"
Success! Nice job Mike, your next drink's on Eric!
After Mike accomplished his mission safely, we enjoyed the sunset.
I think we also enjoyed a few Acadias.
Yes, I must have had several Acadias before doing my Statue of Liberty impersonation.
