Free Climbers?

Today I am walking a little funny since I made it into the weight room for the first time. I swear I literally ran into four machines because I felt so out of place. So if I look a little buffer next time you see me, you know why.



Btw, I wanted to give a shout out to AJ at Victory Circle Graphix for making the custom graphics on all the Trek Bikes and Vehicles (he also makes the name stickers for the Discovery Team.) Thank you AJ for hooking up the trailer with a little website bling.

After my rock climbing scare last week, this video sends chills up my spine. Just imagining that there is someone out there that is this crazy sets me back in my chair scratching my head. Read the description above the video and you will see that he unfortunately did not outlive his daring spirit (thanks to Andy Mills for spending time to continually feed me content).

That vid of Dan Osman is just a taste of how close you can walk the line between sanity, insanity, life, and death. He died jumping off a 1000 ft cliff with nothing but climbing ropes to stop him. Check his book: Fall of the Phantom Lord. I'm a fan.

I think that I helped peel the original stickers off that van. Martini, when are you going to cruz out to SLO and ride a little? You need to stay in contact with your old roomies. Later Dude, Chris.
