Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

Time: Saturday, May 10, 2008
Place: Goethe Park, American River Parkway, just east of Sacramento
Terrain: Mature riparian forest, trees and large bushes scattered with open areas between, many fallen logs, topography generally flat but with a few small ravines.
Representing mankind: Me, my brother
Representing nature: Three wild turkeys

"I wonder if we could catch those things?"
"I dunno... Let's give it a shot."

The place was PERFECT for nature parkour, and I managed to get about 7 feet from them at one point. They're pretty quick and they can always just fly away if they want to, but in those conditions I think that the turkeys only had a slight advantage. Given a little bit of luck you could definitely catch up to one. It was absolutely amazing.

...any double meaning that I'm not aware of?
Like jumping on a turkey cold turkey?...

as long as we all understood what you meant by "stenched" (and we did), then yes, it is correct!

OMG...
Yesterday we surrounded one during practice (overpass Geary @Webster), but he easily stenched us away!
(is "stench" politically correct?)

This seriously needed to be video taped : (

No no, we figured that if we could get close enough and touch it, that would count as a "catch". Plus if we were to full-on tackle the thing, it would probably try to peck our eyes out or something.

...if I would get him I could talk him to death.
But you guys...
Would you plan to actually strangle him?

Then what?

I figured I'd cross that bridge when I came to it. :)
