Venturing from Mount Annum

Our friends thought us mad.

We had thrived atop Mount Annum. It was the highest peak as far as the eye could see.

Once, we had sprained an ankle on the Foothills of Many Betas in the west. We remembered miserable visits to the Bog of Eternal Driver Approval in the east. Every time, we had quickly returned home.

But there we were, on the summit of Mount Annum, climbing into a cannon aimed at 4°N, 6°W.

So far away, and yet oddly specific. We lit the fuse and plugged our ears.

We flew over the stifling Bog of Eternal Driver Approval. We flew over the perilous Sea of Recklessness.

We landed, as we hoped, on the uncharted Isle of Rapidity. The landing was unexpectedly soft.

We’ve shaken off the dust and gunpowder. We’ve begun to tend our wounds. We’re excited about the upcoming climb.
