I Went Climbing Without Pants for Do It in a Dress

I'll be honest.  Wearing a dress out in public is getting to be a pretty natural thing for me nowadays.

To be fair, I'm usually heading out to do something awesome in it.  

In August 2012, my father, brother and I hiked for 5 days and over 70km along the Berg Lake Trail in the Canadian Rockies, and we did it while wearing school girl dresses.  Why?  We did it as part of Do It in a Dress, an initiative by the Australian-based organization One Girl, who's programs help support scholarships for young girls and women entrepreneurs in Sierra Leone.  In every way possible, it was a huge success.

This year we multiplied and became the "Climbers Without Pants."

A Zombie Invasion in Saskatoon

Clowns, brides, a pregnant women, an 80's rocker, even a chain gang.  As it turns out, no one was immune.  Hundreds of them shuffling down the street, reaching out at passengers in cars and moaning or growling at any humans they met in their path.

And I was at ground zero: Post-apocalyptic downtown Saskatoon.

Hands in the Air - Berlin

Packed like sardines in a sold out club that has mediocre sound.  It's hot... like sauna hot.  The rain?  It's coming from inside this low ceiling-ed building and is provided by the perspiration of the crowd.  I'd dance like there was no one watching, but there's no room to move anyways.  We all just sort of shuffle in place.  

But the music is good, and that's about all you can ask for.

The location is BerlinGermany.  The music is by UK producer/DJ "Bonobo" and his live band.  The live band is a bit of a...
