Enough can not be said about the help and support I have gotten from The Adventure Queen. So much has she supported me in my adventures she has been elevated to the grand title of the Empress of Adventure!

Sierra LR, Are you kidding about your wife being missing?

Sorry for thread drift, but that's either a terrible troll or really really bad news. Oh man, you made my eyes bug out with that. I'm horribly sorry.

Kudos for my wife Angela! She does almost everything well and, more importantly, puts up with me. There were a couple who couldn't.

too many hot chicks here hooked up to ST losers. what's going on? did you guys slip 'em mind control drugs on that first date?

it's my contention that the best pairings are based on weakness. for example, i've always had a terrible weakness for intelligent women. i'm sorta intelligent myself, but when i run across a woman smarter than me, it puts me in a tailspin. i'm helpless. on the other hand, my wife's weakness has always been for good-looking men. her first heartthrob was charlton heston. didn't seem like any of the men in japan could measure up after she saw ben hur. poor thing wound up wandering the halls at ucla, running into me and thinking, "well, not quite charlton, but i could do worse."

so i recently took her fishing for the first time ever. thanks to my alaskan brother, we took a day charter out of seward and her arms got sore wrestling with silver salmon. a native japanese who has loved sushi all her life, she got a real-life close-up look at what's involved in catching fish--the beauty, the thrill, and the sadness. it's a measure of my regard for her that these things should all have hit home.

She wouldn't smile for this pic, because the dog had jumped up that morning and knocked off half of her front tooth with his noggin.

We celebrated our 32 anniversary August 1st! I love him so much - partner, lover, best friend, rock.

He took me climbing in New Hampshire on our second date and so I have him to thank for my lifelong passion for climbing.

He doesn't climb outside much anymore, but occasionally we head out to climb together. This has been a good year for us climbing together - we had a day in Red Rocks, a day in the Valley, and a few days in the Meadows. I took the above photo last week after we finished Tenaya Peak.

Just watched our wedding video with my precious wife. Brought tears to my eyes. 22 years ago she looked so happy!

Hope she still looks happy.

My long suffering husband hates exposure and would be delighted to merely belay me on single pitch climbs. Yet I somehow got him on a five pitch route this past weekend.

He always encourages me to chase after adventures, with or without him.

He will be putting some sweat equity into our future home next week.

He never expected be a daddy. but he has a wonderful relationship with his daughter.

I think I'll keep him.
