"Some people work hard for important things like food, shelter, safety and esteem, and relish in the comfort and security they achieve. But for some reason, some of us push those things aside and continue to seek some sort of enlightenment through discomfort."

Yes, yes, and well yes.

Wanderlust will forever be in my soul

And so begins this year trip planning…….

For some reason I spent my first two climbing years denying myself the use of chalk. Why? Who knows…now I never leave home without it.

What an incredibly tragic loss of life.

I haven’t seen much reported on this, but does it seem that it’s not as publicized as it should be? Would it be more so if these had been individuals who came to climb rather than sherpas? Or have I just missed the news?
I’m curious.

We Remember
Take a moment to look through these photos and read the brief stories.
Simply stated, they are Boston Strong

I wonder if this would be of any help on NYC subways.

Awesome images!
Kind of makes me rethink my decision to get a job instead of hiking the PCT.

Memories of Mt. Washington: Sometimes you just need to stop and snap a picture

Much, Much, needed update!

I’ve been a bit Tumblr neglectful this week. Shame on me.
But!
I’ve got a fine reason…

I am officially gainfully employed in San Francisco working at an epic non profit and last week was my first full week (insert unnecessarily loud scream).

Now I am on the hunt for the perfect place to live which means I’m taking off my nomad hat for a while. This feels incredibly weird as I haven’t had a home in almost a year or sat behind a desk, but man, it also feels good.

So the west coast life truly begins and I can only imagine the adventures that await!

Looking forward to sharing the next chapter.

Cheers to new beginnings!
