My co-adventurer; we got to know each other on the soccer field. I remember quite fondly the goal she scored off of my assist. The conection was a lot of fun for both of us. I was cycling a lot at the time. She bought me a tandem and held on tight (probably with her eyes closed) while I tried to break 55MPH going down a hill. I didn't know at the time she was afraid of going fast. Our hike to the top of Half Dome together(her idea) was magical. We danced on the top. I was fishing a lot at the time and she became the best fishing partner anyone could ask for. Then one day instead of going out on our own we decided to go out on a party boat. The boat didnít have much luck so we stayed out for around eight hours with Heidi sea sick for about seven of that. Last year at 55 I took up rock climbing and she didn't flinch or miss a step. She belays me all the time and has started climbing as well. At Indian Springs there is an unnamed route that was her first, she calls it Just Right. On rest day before a big hike last year she suggested that we check out an area called Twin Crags at North Shore Tahoe. Well itís an hour through head high manzanita to get there and a half hour back. Us both in shorts with our legs shredded and bleeding Iíve never seen her smile so big. Sheís not perfect if she was she never would have married me.
We stick to lakes now
My co-adventurer, focused
A truly wonderful wife that I love with all my heart and soul.
