I'm back on the road again, after too long a time, and damn... it feels good! I've finished my nursing degree, and pending my final exam results (fingers crossed) I'll officially be a registered nurse!! I have secured a job in the lovely town of Canmore, Alberta which dosent start until January. What other choice do I have but to grab my visa card, hit the road, and head south???!!
Just left the Red River Gorge. Midway through two months leave of absence from work. The past month went by so heart-breakingly fast. After being chained to my desk 50+ hours a week for the past year, I am PSYCHED to be outside and rock climbing. If desk jobs aren’t great for training, they’re at least good for motivation on trips. Several times when there were ten people in line for my warmup, or the weather straight sucked, or my skin was shredded to the point of excruciating pain, I gleefully reminded myself “It’s TUESDAY—and I’m outside!” ...
Its Wednesday the second. This weekend it the first climbing competition for me of the season. Getting pretty stoked. Its just a small local comp put on by my local gym. DJ's, tonnes of problems, and a lot of friends. Not to mention an awesome after party. Can't complain.
A week ago I left a perfect October in Yosemite for an epic trip to China, to partake in the Petzl Roctrip in the Getu Valley. What a crazy contrast, after about 40 hours of travel I ended up in rural China, staying in a tiny village surrounded by an amazing amount of incredible limestone walls.
