That looks fun Kia. Did you pilot the plane to get there?

What was the 'cut the rope' comment in the car? I know I've heard that before.

Naw we didn't fly ourselves hahah. The "cut the rope" comment is kinda an inside joke. One time we were on leaning tower and someone was on the same radio frequency as us and having an epic. We heard them screaming "CUT THE ROPE." We were like WTF is going on there?? Sad, but we couldn't help but laugh. So now we just screw with each other by yelling "cut the rope" while we are climbing.

This trip all took place on a soundstage at at an airforce base in rural Nevada. Nice try pooptube!

I'll be flying if the storms clear and the winds die down. I'll try to scout for you, DT and CM.

Leashes? Bolted Belays? Restaurant food?
The locals don't turn down bolted belays, or restaurant food.
Why should visitors?

Kia,

at this point, I just want to know how the hell you manage to juggle all your freakin hobbies? And still have a sweet job?

Cool report!

I just moved to Calgary last week and headed out this weekend to check out the ice around Banff. Sweet video Kia! You seem to be all over the place.
