Still Hard

So Hueco Tanks is still the most punishing area on the planet. I have yet to go anywhere that requires so much skin, so many muscles, and so much tenacity to complete projects. We're sitting in the sun right now nursing sore/injured fingers. It was really nasty yesterday and it made for some tired bodies and digits. Lindsay absolutely CRUSHED with an ascent of Better Eat Your Wheaties V9. It's worth mentioning that she did it in four tries. Very few people, male or female can claim such an achievement.

If our bodies can continue on our regiment of punishment, I think good things will happen within the next few weeks. The weather is looking less gorgeous and more Feb. for the next few weeks but c'est la vie. We're contemplating going to Bishop CA in early March, otherwise we'll head north to southern Utah. Pieces are falling into place as far as the move goes also, with a promising job prospect in Salt Lake for myself at a climbing gear distributor. Lindsay's studying at a hurried pace as always and continues to further her ongoing education. I don't know how she's so damned smart and so damned strong at the same time (I try like hell to do one or the other and even then I struggle)!

Oh yeah, the in-climate weather has given us some lovely sunsets.

Wow, Lindsay you're crushing!! Wheaties is hard! Leif, it sounds like you guys are having a blast. Wish we were there to enjoy it with you. Keep us updated, and say hi to BJ for us.

Take care.
