sucker punch

Things I’ve been doing of late:

Provincial Emergency Program Search and Rescue Team Member Certification. (for people who like, drive off cliffs or get stuck rock climbing, or are stuck on a steep cliffy place. We get them out. Its pretty sweet, I’d recommend it)

Sleeping out on the streets of Vancouver waiting for a sale at Mountain Equipment Co-op to start the next day. Got some sweet $500 La Sportiva Nepal Evo mountaineering boots for $80, no big deal, ya know, they’re just boots and stuff.

Planning on climbing Mt. Baker this weekend; 12,500ft mountain just as a warm up for climbing Everest this summer. It’s not that big anyways.

Having sweet hang out sessions at my house just about everyday. Usually involving happy juice and dinner.

Trying to find me a pair of skis. Just a good pair of skis but not for 700 bones. And then getting a back country set up for all your backcountry ski dreams to come true.

Not having mid-terms. Because of all the outdoor leadership stuff this semester, we don’t have midterms. Its like being out of school watching everyone else stress out. I realized that I’ve never not been a student. And that if not being a student is this much fun, I wonder if I like the whole student thing. Hmm…

Climbing Evrest huh? You're rediculous. I've never quite understood the whole "midterms" thing. I have "midterms" but they rarely all come at once. Usually "midterms" means a series of tests and papers streatching from the 5th or 6th week of school up to the 8th or 9th.
I would tease you about being materialistic, but I know it would hurt your sensitive feelings. And I also know that mountaineering people always need lost of "stuff" to do what they do effectively. So I shall refrain. Materialist. ;-)
Have you talked to JandJ lately? They're kickin but like crazy around here. Do you know how happy we'd all be if we got to see your shining face come out here again? Ooohhh so happy.
