Coming up quick - a climbing trip to El Potrero Chico (wikipedia) in Nuevo León (wikipedia), Mexico. We've been climbing indoors a few days a week for the last 1-1/2 months. Hopefully it'll be enough practice to get our bones off the ground. It's going to be nice to escape the cold for a week. As I'm writing this, it's 11° F here at home.
Last year we burned 3 out of 4 weeks vacation on an east coast trip - part family & family reunion, part climbing & sight seeing + lots of driving. While interesting and fun at times, we won't do it again - unless we're retired. One place I would revisit is the Gunks (blog post).
So we have lots of road trips planned this year. From the weekend warrior version to as many as 3 week long vacations. Also it looks like our Crestone (our rental site) renter may be gone a bit this summer. This will leave us a some time down there before he comes back. I'm hoping .. lot's of potential first ascents in the Sangres .. I think. Looks good from a distance anyway.
Stay tuned ...
