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.

Two things. First of all, I FINALLY lost a toe nail today. Scroll down and you will see a previous post that shoes a photo of the big toe on my left foot after Rainier. Thats NOT the one I lost. I lost the one on the big toe of the right foot.

Second of all, we are trying to plan the next climb. We are discussing Baker in the summer, me, Keith, Jay and Mark. We came across Have you ever heard of it? You climb mountains, and raise money for inner city youth to experience the great outdoors. Pretty cool. We are thinking about it.

Long Time

I haven't blogged in a while mostly because I haven't had anything to do with climbing since the successful summit of Rainier.

I have mostly sat around, not exercising and eating everything possible. I am trying to figure out what to climb next, whether its in the winter or the summer.

Mt. Baker looks like next summer with some of the Rainier crew, but we are also discussing a winter climb of Shasta or somewhere else like it. Who knows.

Boring post, but at least I did it!
