It's been four months since my last post. To my surprise, there have been 2,600 page views in that time. Anyway, I feel that my loyal readers (or reader) deserve an explanation. First, we moved in July on the cheap. Believe it or not, that wasted about one month. Second, at the end of the big moving day, I re-injured my lower back. I could barely walk for two days and hobbled around the house with trekking poles for another week. It took about two months for my lower back to heal (I hope it's back to normal now). So thanks to the move and the back injury, mountaineering was out of the question from about mid-June to mid-September. Third, I am pouring most of my energy now into songwriting, recording, and performing. My brand of rock music can be heard on SamPageMusic.com.
I'm looking forward to getting back to the SoCal mountains in the next few weeks.
