|Upper Dewey Lake|
I quickly calculated the average angle of inclination and tried explaining to her just how steep a climb we were facing. Kellie was not swayed by my ability to mentally calculate arctangents. She continued her ascent. I trailed behind, bitching and complaining in her wake. After an hour of hiking, all of it uphill, Kellie probably would have turned around, but I had whined and bellyached so much that she pressed on just to punish me for making such a fuss. She told me that I could turn back; she'd go on without me. I would have accepted her offer, but there are bears loose in Alaska. I decided to stay with her. There’s safety in numbers. I can’t out run a bear, but I can out run Kellie.

I always let her precede me through the doors just so I could laugh as she struggled against the door until it finally popped open. Luckily for us, only those on the other side of the door were endangered.
My intention in writing this post was to ensure that you don't venture out on vacation without the proper training. Just because evolution forgave my wife's lack of education, you should not expect to be as fortunate. It's Kellie's World.
