What's the Fun Scale? I'll let Kelly Cordes tell it to you straight:
Type I Fun – true fun, enjoyable while it’s happening. Good food, good sex, 5.8 hand cracks, sport climbing, powder skiing. Margaritas.Why am I telling you about this? Because frankly it's entertaining to have a scale on which to measure weekend warrior trips. Also, because everyone's life experience makes their take on the Fun Level Scale different.
Type II Fun – fun only in retrospect, hateful while it’s happening. Things like working out ‘till you puke, and usually ice and alpine climbing. (Think a bad hangover that makes you swear you'll never drink again)
Type III Fun – not fun at all, not even in retrospect. As in, “What the hell was I thinking? If I ever even consider doing that again, somebody slap some sense into me.”
