Well it's been over two years since I taught you all the proper way to grow facial hair. And now we - Chelsea and myself - have decided to reinstate the online publication of our most secret thoughts.
So here is the inaugural post of a new era. It is going to be a quick recap of the last two years of adventures and life.
As you well know, we moved from Alaska in June 2008, and went back to Chelsea's hometown of Chiloquin, OR. We bought a house, and quit blogging. We skied Crater Lake in the winter, and climbed Smith Rocks in the summer, and tried, more or less unsuccessfully, to find a good place to mountain bike.
Then, in February 2010, we moved again. This time we landed in the northern foothills of the Eastern Sierra, Reno, NV. I think I like it here. Reno is a really weird city, but it has a Whole Foods, so Chelsea is happy, and we have no money. We took a Trad climbing class with Alpine Ascents International, and that opened up a whole new world of possibilities to us. (If this is to deep and private for anyone, feel free to take a break, get some coffee, whatever). We kicked off the climbing season with a trip to Joshua Tree with Dani and Adam to use our new skills. We have had the campingest summer yet, spending at least two nights a week in sleeping bags since May 22, climbing almost every weekend. It was a good summer.
Ok, that brings us up to the present, hopefully this blogging streak will last longer than my ill-fated how-to phase.
P.S. If you want to read something more intriguing than this, Chelsea is going to author posts about home decorating, nutritious food, natural childbirth, and other topics of more general interest.
