how come we don't have a proper hiking thread?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

i feel like there are a lot of boarders that like going for walks but we only ever get a few pages out of a thread on that topic
seems odd

there's a remnant of an extinct volcano near me called calavera hills, right in the middle of a neighborhood. it basically blew like half of itself away millions of years ago so its now just this steep hill shaped like a "c" with the missing portion being a sheer, curved cliff face that you can get vertigo off of by hiking to the top and staring down into it.

one night when i was driving home from the beach it was one of those mega full moons that loom impossibly bright and huge on the horizon. i noticed it was rising in the direction of the calvera hills so i headed over there thinking it would be cool to hike to the top and just chill and check out the moon for awhile. when i got to the top clouds had rolled in and obscured any view of the moon so i just sort of took in the 360 panorama of suburban lights and prepared to head back down the trail.

then i noticed this pale little yellowish/orange light glowing in some shrubs. my first thought was that someone had tossed a cigarette butt and i tensed up because i'd thought i was completely alone, and if someone was around me they were being totally silent. i couldn't smell smoke though so i hunkered down to get a closer look at the ember. on the way up i had passed a shrine someone built for a dead relative that they left sea shells and flowers on, so my next thought was that maybe it was an incense stick that someone had left there that burned down to its base. but when i blew on it there was no color change like you would expect when you blow on embers. it just sort of bobbed up and down.

i used a twig to prod at the ember and it stuck to it, so i raised it up to my face to get a better look. the nighttime cloud cover was making it really hard to see any details but it looked like a glowing ember sort of divided into six kernels almost like corn on the cob. it then occurred to me that this must be some bioluminescent creature i'd never heard off and headed off back to my car so i could inspect it in the cab light. moving down the trail i saw another glowing ember in some shrubs further off, which supported my idea.

back in the car under the dome light i saw that it was an insect that looked like a long, thin, uncurled rolly polly. it was attached to the stick via some white webbing, and the six glowing kernels were the final segments of its body, or its ass. it seemed like it was totally comatose. i was thinking i was going to take it home and keep it in a jar to see what the end of this weird process was but then i felt bad for taking it out of its environment and walked it back to a nearby shrub and tried to leave it the way i found it.

i googled the fuck out of bioluminescent creatures in california and there isn't anything. is it possible i made a unique discovery of some insect that only becomes bioluminescent during mega full moons or something? i called the department of fish and wild life about it and they said "'you're movin' with your auntie and uncle in bel air.'

check out #4 on this page

Of the over 12,000 millipede species known, only a handful of them belonging to the genus Motyxia are bioluminescent and all of them are found exclusively in the mountainous regions of California. They spend the day burrowed under the soil but upon nightfall these blind creepy crawlies wriggle out from the ground to munch on dead plants and emit a constant glow from their exoskeleton. Their glow is ominous to predators: When disturbed or threatened they release toxic cyanide from tiny pores in their bodies. In an experiment to test this notion, researchers placed fake painted millipedes made of clay alongside real glowing ones at night and examined them the next morning. To their surprise the fake millipedes were viciously attacked upon four times more often than the real glowing ones by what they deduced were rodents.

o, cool

i'd found some bioluminescent centipedes in south america on google but none for california. the weird thing is that this is a small isolated hill like 15 minutes away from the beach so it's not like mountainous, high altitude terrain. also, it was just the butt of the bug that was glowing, not the whole body. it did look pretty much like that though...so i probably had my face right up in a toxic cyanide emitting insect.

anyway, thanx for dredging the up!

i love to hike but without having a car and living in a big city, its more just "walking"
