I called my Grandpa last week and the first thing he said to me was "Don't you know people DIE rock climbing?!"
I'm sure the six of you that read my blog already know, but November 3, Amalia Smith and I are packing up and taking off to New Zealand. Our plans so far are that we are going to hike and climb and surf and whatever else we want for greater than 6 but less than 12 months. In preparation for the trip, I had one month to learn to climb. Turns out I LOVE CLIMBING! And that I work with the best people in the world to learn how to climb. Casey. Seriously. Thanks.
