Hueco-4, Phil-0

After a few weeks punting in Hueco Nikki and I decided to leave. We were so home sick! We drove back to Boulder just in time for me to catch a ride to Winter OR. My good friend and Himalayan veteran Dave Watson (also from the glorious state of Connecticut) was driving to Salt lake from his current residence, Minneapolis MN. Dave showed up at 11:30 Thursday night and after a few hours of sleep we hit the road at 4 A.M. We spent the next few days at the trade show doing trade show things. Very exhausting! After the show we stayed in Salt Lake and skied a day at Alta. I had a blast hanging with Dave's friends. And even got my first face shot, as skiers call it.

Now I'm back Boulder and have a loose plan to rest until after Super Bowl. We'll see if I can hold out that long.

I would recommend any readers of my blog to check out Dave's site

After a week and a half I still have nothing to show for my time in Hueco.

Here I am trying to ascend Sunny Side Up. Sunny Side is a cool climb that climbs some uncool rock. The moves are fun and when I get back to Hueco I'm excited to finish it off. Which leads me to my next bit of information. I'm in The Bay for the weekend for a family reunion. My Mom and Dad will see each other after only 20 YEARS! I'm so happy to be able to see my Mom and Dad in the same room. Not to mention Josef (my other dad) and my brother Billy is here too.

I'm planning on growing some skin while I'm here in The Bay. But what is a visit to The Bay without a stop at The Dungen!

Yes fukin Yes!!!!

On a side note the video of Trinity is up.

Check for the video titled, Three to Remember for the footage.
