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.
Jailhouse season has come to an end and I am fortunate to have sent two of my projects. Summer is an off season for climbing, but I'm still going to take a few trips. Tahoe over Memorial Day and Maple Canyon over July 4th. I've also been climbing in Marin and I have some new projects at Mickey's Beach and Endless Bummer.
Aside from climbing, I'm hoping to do more hiking and backpacking this summer. It's amazing to have the Sierras relatively nearby and there are sooo many trails on my to do list.
I'd like to do more cooking and baking during the off season. Maybe I'll finally attempt the Tartine recipe for morning buns. :P
I need to run more too. I've been eating wayyy too much lately.
