Loos with Views and an Update on Me


I am pretty dull lately. A lot of work and time at home. I did go to Vegas a few weeks ago for work but that is as exciting as it gets for me lately. We are trying to figure out next climbs. Possibly Shasta or some place like that in Feb or March for this years winter climb, and then probably Baker again in the summer, maybe through Summit for Someone.

I have been hiking lately, with my 30 lb or so pack. Its great to get out and now I have all the gear for cold weather hiking. I have been hiking a lot in Ridgefiield, trying not to get overly fat and complacent.

Oh, and my most exciting news is that the book with my photo from the toilet on Baker finally came out. Its called a Loo with a View and is available at Amazon. Its written by Luke Barclay. Click on the link on the title to go to the Amazon page. I am the last page of the book where you are asked to send in your photos.

Man, you are really getting there with some of your climbs. Next stop Annapurna, right? ;-) I am so far behind you guys.

Question: Do you read any climbing magazines and if so, which ones? I'm toying between either "Climbing" or "Rock and Ice" as a good insight into high range mountaineering.

you know, Backpacker is my favorite. The others tend to be very heavy on rock. I haven't found the perfect mountain climbing magazine.
