00:00 - 00:03The DEC is saying
00:04 - 00:05To expect big crowds today
00:05 - 00:07The Garden, Giant,
00:08 - 00:12And St. Huberts trailheads
00:12 - 00:15Will be entirely full before 5 AM
00:17 - 00:19That’s ok
00:19 - 00:21We will just park at the Loj
00:24 - 00:26Sir
00:27 - 00:28The Loj...
00:31 - 00:33The Loj was full by 4:30 AM
00:34 - 00:36There is nothing left
00:53 - 00:58Everyone who is not a PSL sipping millennial urbanite, leave
01:13 - 01:15I have waited all summer
01:15 - 01:17For peak autumn leaves
01:18 - 01:23And you tell me I can’t even park?
01:25 - 01:28 The leaves are changing as we speak
01:29 - 01:31My followers expect fire content
01:31 - 01:34I can’t do some repost from last year
01:34 - 01:37We need to find a way to get to Marcy dam
01:37 - 01:40There’s a road in there I know it
01:40 - 01:42We don’t have to do a high peak
01:42 - 01:46Not do a high peak?! Then what’s the point?
01:46 - 01:48Sir, there are other trails
01:48 - 01:52The only other trail is Indian head!
01:53 - 01:54And I’ve done it twice!
01:56 - 01:57I’ve hiked Cascade and Giant
01:57 - 02:00And I’ll be damned if a full parking lot
02:00 - 02:03Is going to keep me from Marcy
02:04 - 02:08I’ve got my jeans and machete
02:08 - 02:13And I just put a new Patagonia sticker on my Subaru
02:14 - 02:16I am a wilderness god
02:17 - 02:21Damn them all, I am entitled to this
02:27 - 02:29I was going to be a mountain man
02:30 - 02:34A bonified 46er with my own number
02:34 - 02:36But now everyone and their dog is too
02:41 - 02:42How can I stand out
02:43 - 02:47When every other photo I see on the gram is
02:48 - 02:53Algonquin, Cascade or Indian Head
02:54 - 02:56I turn up the saturation sure
02:56 - 02:59And fly my drone as high as I can
03:00 - 03:02But none of that matters if I can’t park
03:04 - 03:07It’s ok, we can still park at Marcy Field
03:14 - 03:16What am I supposed to do now?
03:19 - 03:23I could hike in the winter and use my phone as a light
03:25 - 03:26Or I could try camping
03:31 - 03:33No screw that
03:40 - 03:46I know there’s a road in there, the rangers rescued me on it
03:46 - 03:49When I got lost after my phone died
03:53 - 03:56My Jeep can make it. Get my keys
