her father was a rolling stone….

Today I’m going to Salt Lake City for the bi-annual Outdoor Retailers Trade Show.  I have a new camera since last week, the Canon G10 point and shoot thingy.  It’s rad.  I’ll be sure to take lots of annoying pictures and post them, partly because I’ll be bored, mostly because there’s going to be a pile of rock star celebrities to hound, but also cause there’s some really cool shit happening – from gear design, to clothing lines – and you deserve to know about it the very second it happens, that’s my job, to bring the world I see as it unfolds into your life via this computer screen, well that and to risk my health on inverted granite.  Okay I gotta go board the jet plane now,  but stop by tonight, and tomorrow for an industry update.  Any special requests? An interview with any of the divorced climbing couples for example?  How about Odub, he’s always got something controversial and real to say?   It’s gonna be fun.  Maybe I’ll see you there….

I took this pic with my new shutter box, last week, when I was on a different plane, one of thousands.

  • Photo looks like an ad for westjet. You should submit it.

  • Have you played around with the Patagonia Nano-Puff? Any thoughts?

    The T&B split is the biggest news in climbing this year. Get that scoop!

    Crap. So, I got off the plane, someone handed me a beer and I’ve been a bit tipsy ever since. So no post tonight. Maybe tomorrow if I can dodge the alcoholics. The Beth and Tommy split is big news for sure, but I believe it happened last year, anyway, they’re friends of mine and I’d have to say that topics off limits for me. Now the Dean and Steph divorce on the other hand may be fair game.

    By the way Daniel Woods CRUSHED the field tonight and flashed all three final problems to win the Mammut bouldering comp with what looked like relative ease. Not too shabby for a guy who stayed up until 2 am drinking tequila. Mmmmmm, tequila. Oh to be 20 again.

    p.s. Matt, thanks for the suggestion, perhaps I will.

  • Steve Traversari

    One of these years I’ll make it to that show myself.
    Maybe you can track down “Pass the Piton Pete”. He’s a bit of an obscure fellow but he’s always got some good philosopy to impart on whomever will listen.
    Enjoy.
