For those of us who don't climb ice...this time of year gets bad.

What are you doing to fight the winter no climbing blues?

Send word before I check myself into the nut house.

Thanks.

Nordic skiing... it's more like the reverse for me... rock climbing is what helps get me through the rest of the year until there is skiing again, but the last years have been rather frustrating for our kind.

It is -that- time of year, but as Chris says, the xc skiing has been pretty good this year, and more is coming down as I type. What else? Well, I finished off reorganizing / updating the Nears on MP (how's it look?), so that was a nice romp through the guidebook and a mental walk down the cliff. Currently looking at fares to Vegas, since I'm headed to SLC for a conference end of February. Spent some QUALITY time up in the attic replacing a bathroom fan the other day. Have you watched Orange is the New Black?

Solstice was in December already, it's coming around soon enough. Let's get up to Roger's Rock this year, eh?

ah yes the good old black magic! I have not needed it since that one time as conditions have never been as weird as that day. also, this year I have been skating exclusively. this weekend should be really good local skiing if the promised storm pans out, so get back on your skis and enjoy.

This year has obviously been pretty tough for mountain biking, which has seen me getting back to the climbing gym more often. I am more jealous than ever of you locals who have groomed trails to ski. Plan to hit them up Saturday.

Went snowshoeing today. One more week and I'll be out west (AZ, CA, NV) for a two month road trip.
