More jobs...

Greetings all.  While folks clamor for more details from Ian and my recent Palisade Traverse, I feel compelled to offer up a few excuses as to why I haven't delivered.  Rather than rest on my laurels after the big endeavor, I have actually stepped it up a notch.  Well, up a notch in terms of life and work and writing.  Stepped it down considerably when it comes to physical activity.  I have a number of exciting irons in the fire right now.  New jobs, exciting opportunities, and travel plans are all coming together these weeks around the equinox.  Additionally, I am planning and training for my AMGA Ski Mountaineering Guide Exam up near Whistler British Columbia.  So, in bulleted list fashion, here's what I have going on.

And, last but not least, I have been presented with an amazing opportunity.  
  •  My friends Janelle and Mark Smiley are on an ambitious quest. Basically, they're going to the mountains and bringing back inspiration. I recommend checking out their Kickstarter campaign and contributing what you can. If they reach their highest goal, they'll take me along to help with their Alaskan adventure this spring!
