Sun Peaks

Rosann and I spent some time at Sun Peaks Resort in Canada this past week with my family - had a good time and got some skiing in. They hadn't had any new snow for nearly a week, but it was still fun since it was the first time for me to ski since my surgeries. My eye is doing well though it will be March or April until I know how good my vision will be.

Hey Marseilles at Neumos

Hey Marseilles rocked the house Thursday eve! Really, the sound was great and the place was packed with 300+ energetic people for their CD release extravaganza. (CD available here and at local Seattle record stores. Buy it - you won't regret it!) Some of my pic's and a vid below. Another review of the concert with more video over at Where the Silence Is.

New nephew

My sister delivered her second child - a boy - yesterday afternoon. They haven't settled on a name but Luc promptly began referring to his new younger bro as "Morris". Don't think that one's going to stick...

UPDATE: His name is Ian Jonathan Robbins.

Devo doings...

Skiing, skiing and more skiing! I ponied up for a season's pass at Stevens Pass this year and it's paying off big time: could be setting new snowfall records this year. My goal is to hit the slopes every Tuesday and Thursday with the occasional weekend foray with Rosann. Gotta work them legs into shape for back country skiing! I'm taking an Avalanche Level 2 class next week at Snoqualmie Pass for four days - part of my continuing education as an outdoor professional - Avy 2 certification will allow me to be a lead guide for Alpine Ascents.

Been setting a lot of new routes at Vertical World - managed to reset the entire gym in about two months, averaging around 90 toprope routes and boulder problems each. Members have mentioned they're glad to have my routes back - I enjoy creating them, glad they enjoy climbing them. Taught a Boy Scout climbing merit badge class last Sunday and prior to class the Scout Master informed his scouts that we "teach an excellent course and they would get better, more professional training here than in any Boy Scout climbing program." That was quite an unexpected (and welcome)compliment.

Rosann and I are doing well - she's sweet, easygoing and fun. She also enjoys skiing with me even though she hasn't gone off the Daisy run yet. Doesn't even mind me taking off and skiing by myself a bit - I appreciate that more than she probably knows.

Had my nephew Luc and his cousin Xerxes at the climbing gym on Monday. First time for Xerxes, but he took to it right off (he's five); Luc was distracted and fussy this go around (he's two). Grandparents on both sides were present and plenty of pictures were taken, maybe that was part of it.
