Challenge #1: Cobras, Bandits and Lava oh my...

Jon came out smiling and put a photo up, "Now, let’s get down to bidness, or “business” as I like to call it. Everyone knows that the highest peak on Hacknor is Mount Elferkill, which stands at 11,848 space meters – 3,000 space meters higher than Mount Killamanjaro. Truly an amazing and daunting piece of geography, isn’t it? Few people have climbed it alone. Climbing a mountain this treacherous takes a team that’s willing to work together, using their skills and teamwork to work their way to the summit."

He paused as everyone went to the window to look at the mountain, "That’s why you’ll be scaling it on your own. Your challenge is to climb that mountain."

He emphasized climbing as he looked at me and Kon, guess that means no flying. Just as Jon finished giving us our challenge the seemingly peaceful ice capped mountain grumbled and then....

Lava boiled out of it and Jon smiled, "They don't call them the Fire islands for nothing but don't worry I am sure you will all do okay."


As everyone was grumbling I smiled and gave a wave and bounced out of there.

This so reminds me when I was training in Hades with Vulcan. I actually love climbing mountains.

I wasn't going to waste any time...


It was beginning to look a little like Hell... aw home sulfur home...

I approached with great enthusiasm.



Since I am really athletic, scaling this mountain I knew would be fun and not that hard...

Especially since fire, molten lava and brimstone doesn't bother me..


So Up I went... Hiking up the sides until I came to the rocky cliffs and walls that seem to challenge any who dare to try and climb it..



I found my footing and had just gotten into my groove when I heard voices.

The voices ricochet off the mountain's walls...

I looked down and saw no one, the others were trying to find other ways up... Some of the language was foreign but some were not...


I couldn't tell where the voices were coming from since they echoed from all around but I could tell they were sinister...

As I made my way up, I kept watch. Jon was grinning to much. I knew this Veteran had something in store for each of us.

As I continued to scale this behemoth, I realized there were at least 5 voices perhaps more.


These voices were up to no good... I had a sinking feeling that what they were planning was to ambush me and prevent me from completing my challenge.

I could see a ledge, I was almost at it... The voices were louder and I knew they were on the ledge...

Perhaps I had nothing to worry about, it could be the bob sled team he was talking about.


as I peeked over to see the faces of those 5 voices I couldn't believe my eyes...

It was no other than.... Cobras.... Did Jon know they were here?

Quietly I ease over the side and came to standing...

"Hey! What are you doing here!" I yelled...

The leader hissed, "Our first contestant!"

Before I knew it they began shooting however I wasn't worried, we all know Cobras can't hit anything but these guys were better than I thought. With my Pitchfork I fired a few fire balls at them melting their weapons..

We went hand to hand, my dad taught me several moves so beating these losers wasn't all that hard...

Before I knew it they were begging me to stop, "We are just low life scum doing some community service. Please don't hurt us anymore."

Another complained, "Jon said if we made it hard for the contestants to win and promised to leave cobra he would give us second chance."

I shook my head, "Yeah Jon is all about second chances. Okay I will be on my way then but first I am going to have to tie you up."

I tied the guys up and left them for the Hacknor Authority, just in case they were lying.

it was getting late and I still had to reach the very top..

Finally I reached my destination and began searching for the bridge... again I couldn't believe my eyes ....




The waterfall was beautiful, I knew I just had to follow the water to the bridge...









But I took a quick dip first... When I came out I found 3 bandits sitting where I had set my cloths and back pack...


"Well well well... Lookie what we got here..."
One stated...

I didn't have time for this and I wasn't going to waste my time fighting them naked. So I feared them and sent them running to the Authorities screaming like mad men...

I got dress and took a quick video of the waterfall...



Now I was off to find the bridge.. After a brief walk I saw it in the distance


I ran and got on that bridge, It is funny Jon's picture didn't show the dangerous rapids below.


Now I had to make a decision


Bob sledding or snowboarding. I looked out... This could present a problem... Then a little light bulb clicked on.. Um... How about Surfing



I looked at the map



"COWABUNGA DUDE!" I yell
and then start whistling the theme to Hawaii 5-0







As I near Fire Island D I see Jon with his clip board... I yell, "HEY JON!"

It definitely takes a special talent to ski down a lava flow. My hat is off to you, sir.
