Ancient History

I landed hard on my backside a week or two ago on tele skis (first mistake?) and made the problem worse with a series of horseback riding and heavy lifting. I’ve been taking it easy for a few days, and was inspired to update the site with some old content and new ways to access it.

I’ve kept a blog on and off for over ten years now, but many of those posts disappeared over the last few years as Apryle and I created and maintained a succession of personal web sites. Over the last few days, I’ve updated and restored a ton of old content.

There are a few new (and old) features to the site. Take a minute and check them out!

We have a new snazzy archive that allows easy access to all the old posts on this site and previous…dating all the way back to the year 2000!

I’ve restored a bunch of old blog posts from 2001-2005, and added a “Time Machine” that displays random posts in the sidebar.

Most importantly, for me anyhow, is that I’ve brought back the South America 2004 expedition page with photos, trip reports, and journal entries from my 2004 trip to South America…including a NOLS Patagonia semester and climbing in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru.

Fun little trip down memory lane, though I am certainly looking forward to putting up new chapters going forward. My desire to climb is back, and Africa is a tempting destination for yet another trip of a lifetime. We’re settled, for now: tending chickens, jobs, bank accounts, and gardens…but before long the urge to wander may overcome us again.
