I worked there for 2 yrs so it was mandatory, really, although I drew the line at shadow boxing at the top.
As an aside I learnt to mountain bike properly there – some excellent stuff out the end of Fairmount park, which begins behind the art museum.
Then I sat at the top for about 45 mins watching a procession of fat yanks, start running up, have to stop halfway as they are actually quite long, and eventually huff & puff their way to the top before some feeble shadow boxing whilst hacking up a lung. It was a good spectator sport guessing how far each would get.
Me, but no pics (predates digital photography and smart ferns).
I was chatting to someone about recreating film scenes the other day and decided it would be a project/challenge for my kids over the coming year to watch a film (that they like) with a place that they know or can find and then recreate a scene and do some other bits of work around it.
Platform 9.75 doesn’t count cos it’s a tourist hell hole but other bits of HP might and living near The Peak, Princess Bride would be a doddle.
Me – I’ll be recreating a scene from the awful Couples Retreat on Bora Bora (French Polynesia).
EDIT – but not the bit where the bloke entertains himself.
