My wife has been missing for 2 weeks now.

The police came by yesterday and told me to prepare for the worst.

So I went to Goodwill and bought back all of my wife's clothes.

Wouldn't do a thing different (well, maybe a few, but those are my areas for improvement!).

It's a heck a lot of work, any relationship, but you get out what you put in. Sometimes even more than the combined efforts. We have reaped the rewards here. And still working. And still reaping! :-)

In deep, deep gratitude for my dynamic, challenging, beautiful, wonderful wife!

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 didn’t 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 it’s an hour through head high manzanita to get there and a half hour back. Us both in shorts with our legs shredded and bleeding I’ve never seen her smile so big. She’s not perfect if she was she never would have married me.

Lucky me

This fine woman is the sister of a supertopo member and I am proud to be with her. The wedding is going to be in Zion in June. Here's to her and a big thanks for tolerating me and my life pursuits.

Bump for my wife Lol, she rules. Apparently we both appreciate sarcasm & satire :-)


Here's an email she sent me the other day.


THE LIFE OF A CLIMBER WIFE

I'll wait till 7:00 pm, if I still haven't heard from my husband by then, then maybe I can start worrying. But till then NO WORRYING (insert image of iPhone flashing 7:00 pm.) Okay, 1 more hour. 30 minutes pass… maybe I'll take the dog for a walk at the base of the Chief (or insert popular mass of rock in your region.)

On drive to parking lot, scan the air for Search and Rescue Helicopters (none, check… oh wait what's that… nope just a seagull.) Pull into parking lot, scan rows of cars for line up of ambulances and Military mafia with climbing ropes ready to help evacuate group of climbers off of the rock mass (nope, check… WAIT! Never mind that’s just a hipster driving a converted hearse.)

Get out of car (so casual), leash up the dog (nonchalantly), start to walk toward the trail that leads out of local rock mass (keep disinterested look on face.)

iPhone reads 8:35, repeat math you have done in your head about 6,789 times today - guys left about 6 am this morning, said they'd be done around 2 pm (which in guy time really means about 4 pm) okay lets add in what could have happened to keep them this long:
+ 30 minutes for coffee and comparing calluses sizes on hands
+ 30 minutes for unloading car and getting into a debate over who's shoes are better (laces vs velcro)
+ 20 minutes for taping hands, arms, fingers, feet
+ 5 minutes because they forgot to bring hiking shoes so walking in bare feet
+ 5 minutes for climbing a few trees, small rocks on way to route
+ 45 minutes for getting to base and waiting for a gumbie party to get started
+ 5 minutes for discussion on weather
+10 minutes for cliff bar break and to talk about how they didn't bring enough water
+ 30 minutes to take, post and figure out best hashtags for Instagram photos
+ 5 minutes for discussion on weather
+ 15 minutes for comparing scrapes and bruises at top of climb

--- that brings us to 8:45 pm ( check iPhone, 8:49)… Cue iPhone text coming in "Hey, bailed on the 4th pitch to HOT today, just down at the river having beers, wanna join us."



xoxo

Thanks bc, I wrote that two years ago and I'm still taking pictures. This one as we celebrated our 41st anniversary last month. She'd picked a flower in mid-pitch.



I'm the shadow. You can't tell but I'm smiling too.
