In a struggle to be happy and free

Drystone Wall

Mud and dirt

Continuing my exploration of new things, I went off-roading today. Brad, my rock climbing guy, does a lot of outdoor activities. To hear a list, you might think he’s a ‘granola-head.’ He’s not. I spent the day in the passenger seat of his 4.0 litre Jeep TJ going over terrain that I’d try to avoid if I were on foot!

Here’s Brad making his approach to a climb:

And here’s the climb itself, mid-progress:

You might look at the photo and think it’s not that big a deal. Brad might be the first to tell you that you’re right. Still though, most people are accustomed to the types of sensations they get in passenger cars. Travelling up a rocky 40° ramp is not one of these sensations!

Expect a more detailed report on the events of the day. I wanted to post something before the day ran out. I need to get to bed.
