It is 7 days before my big adventure in California. While I look forward to another trip home to Yosemite Valley, I am also slightly anxious.
I know I am fit and can move for 15-20 hours at a time, doubts fill my head. Did I train enough? Am I strong enough? I am even capable of pulling this off?
Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold's recent adventures in Yosemite compounds this doubts, I feel more sheepish and under-prepared. WOW, they are in shape.

I recognize that I am not at their level, not even close. I just love the spirit of their adventure. I admire their fitness, mental strengths, and positive attitude towards it all.
They inspire me to try harder, think more positive, and be nice!

Along the way I have done bazillions of pull-ups, climbed, fallen, and jugged. Yesterday was King Swing "practice" day....I joked all day. justify leaping into a corridor full of jagged rocks! Hey, I jugged the line a few times too!! (funny little video I compiled).
