In Honor of "The Office" - Planking

So the other day while watching "The Office" the cold start was about planking. I had never heard anything about planking before but I was intrigued. I googled it...I saw some crazy pictures of people up a pole or in a tree. So of course I decided that this was something that I definitely had to try. Of course on my first attempt, I had to take someone like Mickie with me and we wouldn't be climbing to any crazy heights. I know...lame but maybe next time.

Double Plank! We had to get one with both of us, it just made it that much cooler that it was suspended. Even if it was only 2 feet. Baby steps!

Mickie was definitely the best planker. This was on a bridge overlooking the river in Idaho Falls. I tried to do the same thing, but casually failed. Further proof that Mickie is super cool.

I was the Queen of the trash can plank. Don't worry...there wasn't really anything in the trash cans and I think that it turned out pretty cool. Plus later we saw this squirrel doing something very similar. Planking is the way that nature has fun.

Can you plank on a fence? This fence overlooking the falls in Idaho Falls was the perfect place for a plank. Mickie was exceptional once again...she's a natural.

Found this wall by the Green Belt and it was an excellent place for faux rock climbing. So of course, that is exactly what I did...rock climbed a little and then laid face down on a wall and had Mickie take my picture.

So to begin with Mickie was a little skeptical of my choice to go planking...she had the audacity to think that my idea was going to be less than fun. But in the end we had a great time and may or may not be addicted to planking. "You either get planking or you don't...I don't. But I love it!" There is just something fun about finding new and cooler places to lay face down and take a random picture. I can't wait for my next planking adventure. Planking - Idaho Falls turned into a great success. Where will the next adventure be? Who knows...maybe Salt Lake City, St. George, or Wisconsin.
