Postholing up to your knees or did you use snow shoes or skin up?
Neither, actually. There was already a boot track from earlier that day and from the previous day. Even if there hadn't been, it would only have meant breaking trail through several inches of unconsolidated snow. The snowpack had settled a great deal over the past couple weeks.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
