Quick Pics – Obed Tennessee – Rock Climbing

Here are a few quick  pics from this weekend’s rock climbing trip to Obed Tennessee.  The climbing was great, though the weather was a bit wet at night.  Overall it was a great trip, and I’d definitely head back if the opportunity ever presented itself.

Red River Gorge Rock Climbing – Spring 2012

Running gets a lot of coverage on this blog.  I don’t talk about climbing a lot, but it’s mostly due to access, let me explain:  I started climbing over 10 years ago, and instantly became obsessed.  I climbed 4-5 days a week, indoor, outdoor, bouldering, sport, traditional, I read about it on the web, constantly searched out climbing pics, planned trips, drooled over gear catalogues…I was the tireless junky pining for that next hit.  As time rolled on, I settled down (somewhat), started a family and climbing faded from my life.  Between “free time” being less and less accessible and injuries popping up, months would go by without me so much as throwing my shoes in the car.

Fast forward a few years and things have settled down, and I find myself able to fit things in a little easier.  I knew that the ol’ climbing crew was heading to Kentucky this Easter weekend and I bit at the chance to get back out on the rock.  My training for this trip was rather lack-luster but I enjoyed myself all the same and I think it’s time to make climbing a regular part of my routine again.

I’ve attached the photos from our trip in a slideshow at the bottom, but this photo was my favourite:  The route is called Amarillo Sunset (11.d), and it’s located just beside the Shire (crag) in the Red River Gorge.

Anyway, here are the rest of the trip photos:

Here’s a quick pic from our recent trip to Myrtle Beach.  Not much to say that the photo doesn’t convey: The weather was awesome, the beach was great and we had a lot of fun.

Have a good one kids!

Took my family to a Hamilton Bulldogs game last night and snapped this from behind the net.  Great value for the price, especially when the home team wins, 4-3! Again, click the image to get an uncompressed view.
Bulldogs Goal!

I love urban/rural decay photograhy, and I’ve made an attempt(s) to do the genre justice. This is a shot I took a few years ago and I hope you enjoy it; I took this one in 2009 in SW Ontario, Canada.

If you are here for the running content, there is some coming unfortuntately I’ve been busy with work as of late and unable to post more substantial post prepared. Even so, enjoy the photo and let me know what you think.

A Night at the Museum…the Warplane Heritage Museum that is…

Warplane Heritage Museum

This was taken a few years ago at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton Ontario.  What a great facility, the kids loved it!

The plan is a Westland Lysander III which was used mostly as a training craft.  If interested, here’s the Wikipedia link as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Lysander

Gone Climbing…
