Summer Climbing Trips

This summer I traveled to a few new locations to climb.  I climbed at Tahquitz and Suicide Rock in Southern California with JJ.  And then I flew back to New England and hooked up with Chad Farr and climbed at the famous Gunks in New York State.  We also spent a few days climbing in New Hampshire at North Conway.  Both were great trips with some bold "old school" trad climbing.  Fun but scary.

Larsen Reunion 2017

We had a fun Larsen Reunion this summer at Bear Lake.  We did miss Marty and his family though.  I took my Mastercraft boat all the way up the state so that we could enjoy some wake boarding on the beautiful waters of Bear Lake.  It was fun, but I am not sure I will do that again.  The house we rented was spacious and luxurious.

Marty Departs for Medical School

Marty & Hailey moved to Kirksville, Missouri this summer.  That is a big change for our family.  Marty is attending  A.T. Still University, the first D.O. school created in 1892.  They have a nice place to live and have found several other LDS families as the small town has two LDS wards.  Deb and I have already paid them a visit.  We sure miss them and the "boys".  We are glad that Marty has finally begun his journey to becoming a physician.
