Phillip Schaal - Return to El Paso

 
Phillip Schaal - Return to El Paso
 
February 21, 2011 -  Phillip Schaal    
 

Tomorrow I’ll be heading back to Hueco Tanks. Nikki my lovely girlfriend had a week off from her two jobs and we decided, what better place to go for a week in the dead of winter than Hueco?

 

I’m excited to return but also nervous. I’ve felt NOT “On Form” lately. Call it what you will, no motivation, loss of psyche, or not feeling it. I call it laziness. Now I am feeling an urgency to get back “On Form.” Why I feel nervous, last time I was in Hueco I had 3 weeks to get adjusted. Normally I need a week or so to feel in sync with a area. I left Hueco last time feeling in sync, close on my projects. I was excited for but not sure of, a chance to return.

Very dramatic I know. Plus side is no matter how I climb I’ll have a good time with Nikki and friends. Also a fun event that I’m thinking of participating in, is the Hueco Tanks Rodeo. It would be the first time I’ve attended The Rodeo and with an already solid base of problems that I’ve done in the past, I think I could have a strong showing in a sickly strong field. I’ve been pushing myself again and can only hope something comes together.
