Great work everyone! You'll have something on the next edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!
It was a slim week all things consider, but given PAX East was this week that is at least partially understandable. Anyways if you see anything from OTHER users, and not just yourself, that is awesome post me a link to here.
@pimblycharles: The first night was a lean-to...the second night required some "creative" thinking to make it work because much of the area had become overrun with poison oak due to the light showers from last week.
So I have a funny story about the Rock Tunnel. Back when Pokemon Red has just been released there was a debate that I had with a couple of friends pertaining to the Rock Tunnel. The debate pertained to if one could traverse through "Flash recommended" tunnels without using Flash, or if the game secretly placed a "gate" for these tunnels and didn't recognize user directional inputs unless Flash was active or already implemented in those specific tunnels.
So on my first attempt to get through the Rock Tunnel...on my first playthrough....I decided to trek through the entire Rock Tunnel without EVER using Flash. Armed with a Prima Games Guide and plenty of escape ropes I embarked on a ~4 hour experiment (mind you I was a child, and doing this alone) to get through the tunnel.
You can totally do it by the way, but exacerbates every other difficult aspect about the tunnel you have already mentioned in this blog.
