Birthdays are awesome

Excited that today is my birthday!  For dinner we plan to have over some people for burgers, homemade green chili mac and cheese, and some other accoutrement.  I’m happy to be 32 this year and can’t wait to do some more adventures with Christine, who is starting school at Memorial University in 2 weeks!  So much more ahead this year:  France twice, cooking classes with Chef to Go (Chef Bob), south of Spain or a cruise, trip around the Caribbean, and some time in my plane are called for this year!  No big trip to Nepal, though you should expect that in 2015.  You can read more about that at  This is going to be a great year in my new job and I couldn’t be happier than being here for the time being.  Ready for what comes and the planning with all of you!  Hope to see you all soon!

Prepping for Mount Everest in 2015/6

Excited today because I started planning my trip to Mount Everest in 2015 or 2016 with International Mountain Guides.  Planning to attempt to make Camp 3 on the South side of the mountain and see hwo that feels before I decide whether I want to summit someday.

I have a long way to go before I’m ready for the attempt in 2015/6.  I learned many of my weaknesses on Mera Peak in April.  First, I need to cut about 75 lbs.  Good news is I have lots of time and a good game plan.  I just need to stop screwing around, stop being lazy, and start working out and eating better.

I plan to start P90X again as soon as the doctor clears my shoulder next week. That will really help as last time I lost a significant amount of weight and picked up alot of strength in the process.

I have invited about 12 friends to come with me on the trip and I’m hoping for a good turnout.  Need to call IMG to see if I can get a discount for an entire group.  Very excited to go back to Nepal and hope it’s wonderful for everyone.

Look forward to keeping you all appraised of the planning and training on my page when I set it up!

In the meantime, enjoy the video below that I made using a time lapse from a GoPro Hero3 camera at Khare.  The weather changes so fast up there!

Follow Us Around!

Christine and I kept hearing how hard it was for everyone to keep up with everything we do, so I finally decided to start a blog incorporating all the adventures we have with our hobbies.  I will be posting pictures, videos, and travel ideas here and hope that some of our hard work will inspire you to see the world too!  More to come…
