A tough job….but somebody has to do it

Because the mission is to consume a Cheeseburger on EVERY summit on Earth, OldBull accepted the challenge of Vine Hill, 344′, Sonoma County, CA, USA.  Perhaps the most difficult challenge was choosing the burger.  The Bear Flag Republic Brewery in Healdsburg has a full menu of homecrafted brews and CHEESEBURGERS.  To celebrate the local heritage, a “Sonoma Burger” was chosen–beef and bacon, draped in Garlic (inferior in quality to KGB, but garlic, nonetheless) Sonoma Jack Cheese. A short drive later, website-map firmly implanted in his 2 remaining neurons, OldBull found Vine Hill Road, located both the vines and the hill, spent copious minutes decoding the instructions on a camera loaned by Cold Fusion,  Money Shot on the roof of the rentacar, a few steps to the chain-link fence to ascertain he was at least within 6 (verticle) inches of the “summit,” and devoured a wonderful lunch on the 109th (out of 114) highest peak in Sonoma County.

    Old Bull, your level of dedication in preparing for such a summit as this goes beyond words. I can only imagine the hardship you endured as you entered the brewery and were forced to pick from what I’m sure was a lengthy number of choices. Follow that up with what was more than likely a grueling drive followed by myriad footsteps. I commend you fellow summit cheeseburger-er!

    Sam, I thank you for the sympathy. I am still in recovery mode.
    I do suggest that in future posts, you do not use the word “myriad”–likely to attract some unsavory trolls.

    I would have had a hard time leaving the brewery…
