This past weekend, Brian and I followed tradition and hiked our way through (what was in 2007) the largest corn maze in the world!
This corn maze is grown and perfected every October, and if you’re ever in the vicinity of smalltown Dixon, California, I highly suggest you check it out.
This year it took us about an hour to get through, but that’s because there was pretty extensive wind damage and we were rerouted, bypassing a good chunk of maize maze…in years past, it’s taken us the better part of 2 hours to get through, and this is with a map, a compass, and water.
Did she say a map?
Why yes, that’s how crazy this maze is. I seriously doubt you’d be able to make it through without the map. Goodness knows I barely manage with the map.
This year, we went through during the day, but the real fun is to go through after dark. The corn is so high that any surrounding light from civilization is pretty well blocked out, and you need to bring your own light (red-filtered headlamps for us, because we’re badass like that). The best part about night-mazing it up is to be able to sneak ahead of your group, hide in the corn, and then scare the living crapnuggets out of them. Beware about scaring me, though, because I am always ready to impale zombies through their glazed eye sockets.
This year, we emerged triumphant, relatively unscathed, and picked out pumpkins to go home and carve.
To top off the weekend, Brian and I reprised our costumes as Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter at my company Halloween party and we won second place!
Happy Halloween, everyone!!
The maze was even cooler.
Sounds like an excellent weekend!
I just go to the mazes for the fire roasted corn drenched in butter.
Maizes do have that delicious quality.
Oh man! That corn maze sounds rockstar! I wanna go!
Your pumpkins prove to me that you know exactly what you’re getting in to.
Excellent, all that money was wasted on therapy then.
Crapnuggets. Such a great word. Its greatness only parallel to that of fightercock. I love your costumes! I`m glad to see that unlike me, Sandy didn`t botch your Halloween mojo. Wait, you`re not on the east coast.
Did you still dress up??!
Cool maze. There weren’t any children in that corn, yes?
None that I could see…
Holy crapnuggets, that thing is huge. We have a few of those around here, but nothing at that scale. Maybe we like to eat the corn too much.
…that’s what she said?
Yep. I immediately thought that right after I wrote that sentence.
Good thing we’re on the same page.
Oh lord, I don’t know how you can handle a corn maze! He who walks behind the rows… Just GAH! Glad you reprised your costumes. I went as Alice this year- we totally matched from afar!
Ha – we’re blogging soul mates – I KNEW IT!
