Help Save Flat Denny by hiking Mt. Union 5/18

Post by BobP » Apr 30 2013 1:39 pm

So I made a bet with a few people and if I can get 50 people to sign Flat Denny....I get a case of Dale's :y: If I don't, Flat Denny gets 3 clips of hard to find ammo :scared: . I have 5 months to win...are you in on the first of a few random events.

Sounds to me like you have a problem: You need 50 signatures, yet you only have 24 beers to give away ... :-k

Who could bring themselves to even shoot a flat likeness of Denny? :sl:

Does the bet require you to hike with these people or can you just do Piestewa or camelback and get all of your signatures in one shot?

One of the requirements is that they have to be HAZ members and they have to hike with Flat Denny and me.

You should attach here or link a pic of "Flat Denny" so that those who are not familiar will understand..

Aren't there laws against holding people hostage? This also sounds like an extortion plot to get people to hike with you. :gun: :D

I've hiked with lots of people on HAZ (over 70 partners) ranging in age from teenagers to 60's and usually don't need to plot to get people to hike with me...most of the time :)

I've hiked with flat denny already. And I like Dale's. But I'd like to participate in the unloading of a clip of ammo. I'll even bring my own. :)

Me too, but i can only afford 1/2 of a magazine. Chumley, clips are for hair, or for loading a magazine. ;)

I'll do it to meet up with other HAZers as long as it's an interesting hike.

Hey, I've met Denny! Back then, he was normal, not flat. :D

So if you look at the top you will see this is hiking mt union on 5/18. I will be doing it more than once this day to accommodate different schedules including the real Denny. I will also do a side trip to Davis. There are on trail and offtrail options and differing start times. Details will be posted soon.

Flat Denny needs to come hike the Canyon, I know there are 3 of us up here who will help annihilate...I mean sign him...but if worse comes to worse I know a great place for target practice over by Red Butte :D

There will also be another hike probably in June......to.......wait for it...........DENNY MOUNTAIN also in the Prescott area.

As for this hike 5/18, I am thinking of two start times the first being 8am and the second about 10am. The second one will include Mt. Davis for those who want to bag the less prominent peak named for the Confederate President Jefferson Finis Davis.
