Just watched my first World Cup game, Brazil vs. Chile... intense sh#t. Even though Chile lost, they put up one hell of a fight. Good stuff.

I hadn't looked at this thread in awhile, and I always love the new contributions...

Studly, where were you climbing at in WA?

Skully, I kind of enjoy your upside down photo... trippy, in a great way. TFPU!

Clinker, nice photos of your grandson... and that Father's Day card is quite creative!

Lollie... I love Oscar AND his new ship! Badass.

Kath... Lovin' your new boat... I like that you have access to so much water. I miss water! ~ox

Layton Tecumseh Birchell, doing what he does best.
A kid after my own heart, Bruce. TFPU! That tree is a beauty.

Chiloe... nice photo... great greenery... where was this taken?

Kath, that photo is so very peaceful... I love it.


My 42nd Birthday was great, thank you all again for the wishes.
I feel very blessed to get the chance to get older and most important, the chance to witness my son getting older. It still trips me out that he is old enough to drink...legally.

On the popular Höhenglücksteig klettersteig (via ferrata) in Bavaria, a delightful excursion with also a sad history.

Here's another view of our party enjoying life, earlier that same day.

Chiloe... thank you for the article... this stuck with me when reading it:

" Albert had a reputation for traveling to climbs using only human-powered transportation. In remote environments, he relied on travel by foot, kayak or sailboat, part of his lifelong aspiration toward a more self-sufficient form of climbing.

The international climbing community will long mourn the loss of Kurt Albert. He will be remembered as a strong climber, an innovative thinker, and a dedicated friend."
~RIP Mr. Albert


I am happy to see your party having a great time, and a safe one... thanks for sharing your time Enjoying Life!

Yes, Albert's story is striking for who he was, and then to lose all on such a casual outing. From a Rock and Ice profile written in 2011:
Last September, Albert, 56, was guiding a group of novices, friends from the same soccer team, on a via ferrata in the Frankenjura region north of his home town of Nuremberg at a place called Hohenglücksteig. It translates as: “the path where you feel glad to be high up.” Kurt had driven through the night back from a slideshow in Hamburg and was managing on an hour’s sleep. He was standing on a wide ledge, leaned back into his harness, perhaps to rest, perhaps for a clearer view of something, and then was gone. A carabiner was left on the safety wire, and the sling into his harness was empty.

Clearly, Albert knew how to enjoy life.

I guess that's kind of a sober interlude for the Enjoy Life thread, but somehow it all goes together.

Chiloe, while Albert's death is certainly a tragedy and tremendous loss, I agree with you that somehow it DOES all go together. He did know how to Enjoy Life, and lived it to the fullest until the end.

I was unaware of this remarkable man, and am happy you shared the area with me, as well as his legacy. Thank you so much.

On a totally different note, I just wanna say that
Life is fun! :-)
Smile! It makes you happier!
It 's summer. I'm single.
What's there to not enjoy? :-)
Can't really think of anything.
