37 years, it seems like so long but also has flown by. As they go on, I find myself seeking out new things, new phases, but also being more content with settling in to my skin. Friends and family are more important than ever, and I am working on respecting and giving time to them. Life is a constant opportunity to learn and grow, and I’ll take those chances every time I can. Here’s to another year, and with smiles as big as I’ve had recently probably a couple more laugh lines.
On the coast of somewhere beautiful. Where is your favorite camp?
Sitting here with the Bugaboos on my mind. It’s the potential for more trips like these in the future that gets me out of bed and running up hills to train, using the hang board in Ruby between emails, and organizing life so that it can become a reality.
Just pulled this image of my pal @jamesbarkman out of the archives. Mountaineer, van dweller, and also a rad human who’s currently in Ukraine documenting the war. Glad to know you friend.
Finding perspective, out for a little stroll.
I met @stevendimmitt years ago at Smith Rock in Bend. Since then, he’s left his engineering job and started the @thenuggetclimbing podcast. Passions become pursuits, pursuits become life, moments become years. Proud of you pal, looking forward to climbing together again soon!
