I grew up with two siblings in Hopkington & Albuquerque and went to college/grad school in Boston. I've lived in the Bay Area for about 10 years now, so I pretty much consider the Bay Area my home.
Simple pleasures are often the best. Dinner/drinks, a day hike, or chatting over coffee/dessert.
With the end of daylight savings time, I've starting bringing my cold weather & night time running gear to the gym.
Spent 8 days climbing at the Red River Gorge and had an amazing time! A few good flashes, got beat up by a few lines, and took tons of pictures. We also toured the Four Roses distillery and sampled some nice bourbon.
I'm gonna start switching to bouldering for a trip to Bishop later this month. After that, I'll be in Phoenix for Thanksgiving to visit the fam. I can't wait to see my niece!
I have a kitchen chemistry experiment in the works for my take on eggs benedict:
Bacon cheddar biscuit
Braised pork belly
Reduced braising jus
Significant grocery shopping and prep work is involved, so I need to find a non-climbing weekend to try this out. :P
