So my dad is off on a wild trip indeed - to the exotic, beautiful, remote and COLD land of Antarctica this winter. He leaves in about a week's time for an entire summer (the seasons get reverse up there), about 3.5 months worth of stay. Pretty proud of him we all are, not to mention just a little nervous given that Antarctica is a little more than just another trip overseas. But hey, I'll shut up about it and let the man himself fill you in. Check his diary out at http://himalayanadventurer.blogspot.com. Wish him luck thru the next week of crazy prepwork.
I'm a recent transplant to the San Francisco Bay area. I moved here after 7 fun years in the beautiful South-eastern US. I'm a product manager for PayPal, and help improve customer experience for PayPal users. I grew up backpacking in the mighty Himalayas. However I have shelved aspirations to scale tall peaks in favor rock-climbing (shorter, but harder, but safer). My favored style is sport-climbing and I have climbed all over the world, and hope to keep discovering amazing climbing the world has to offer. I work hard during the week, and climb outdoors most weekends. I also explore the amazing culture that San Francisco has to offer.
