I haven't put anything on here in quite some time. Too busy. About a month or two ago I tried to make a video rappelling from Alderman. The rappel was great (did it upside down too) but you couldn't see anything on the video...too was just a regular digital hand-held camera.

I've heard it through the grapevine that a metal plate has been placed over the frame of the door that leads to the roof of Gilmer so the latch cant be jimmy-ed. That is a very noble effort on the part of facilities, but unfortunately it will not stop individuals such as myself. Now I will have a legitimate excuse to climb the building instead of just doing it for fun. (Let it be said, though, that I do not recommend this to anyone. In all honesty, I also discourage it in private communication with others.)

In other news, there was supposed to be a good meteor shower tonight, and I thought about goin on the water towers for a view, but I never got around to it.

However, I did step out onto the balcony of my apartment to discover a most excellent view of my nearby surroundings. A fog has enveloped the city, and it catches all the nightlights inside its cloud, setting everything aglow. My friend lent me a camera so I could click a few snaps. Quite colorful. It would have been a good night for roofing. Click to enlarge:
