Inhaltsangabe: What is it like to rock climb, without the safety of ropes, relying solely on your decision-making and route selection skills? Do you ever think about falling? What about rattlesnakes? What about loose rocks and slippery dirt? What about cacti and scratchy bushes? A friend asked me to tell my story, so I did. You will find 77 photos of the challenges I faced, as well as the scenery that is only seen when scaling and scrambling and climbing. I think that you will enjoy this book, and maybe, if you?re brave enough, it will encourage you to try rock-climbing yourself.
Über den Autor: Who is this guy who wrote this book? He is the nut you saw jump out of a plane at 13,000 feet, screaming in delight during free-fall, and landing (alive) with whoops of joy and excitement. He is the shredder barreling down the mountain atop his snowboard, pushing powder here and there, hoping desperately to avoid the fallen newbies. He is the biker zooming past you along the trail, helmet and sunglasses hiding his identity, splashing through the stream as you dodge the cascading water. He is the scrambler who darted into that crevice, up that crack, and arrived at the top of those rock piles, encouraging you to follow. He is the old-timer freezing his hiney in California?s frigid oceans, gliding past you on the boogie-board, gliding along the crest of the wave, then returning to do it again. He is the seemingly lost man, looking for hidden geocaches along nature?s trails and within man?s cities, seeking, finding, logging, and moving on to the next. He is the grass-cutter, the dish-washer, the factory-worker, the carpet layer, the demolition-worker, the maintenance-man, the security-guard, the store product-counter, the gift-wrapper, the sales-person, the museum tour-guide, the lecturer, the teacher, the writer whose book you now have available to you. While he has degrees and certification in religion and philosophy, gifted education and technology, his lifetime of exploring and hiking and climbing and biking have provided a wealth of experience that classrooms and lectures could not. Hiking silently along a trail, hearing a crackle, becoming still, and watching a deer walk a mere twenty feet away, unaware of human presence, being itself, cautious, quiet, careful, is learned about only by being on a dirt trail. No lecture or video can create the awe, the excitement, the joy of life that a few hours out there can bring to the hiker, the trekker, the wanderer, the explorer. That is where you will find him when he isn?t writing a story or reading a sci-fi, western, or fantasy novel, writing in his journal or reading a book on theology or weird creatures, studying a bug he just found or reading about one that he has not. He is an avid reader, keeping track of every book he has read over the past twenty-two years. The total is well over a thousand.
