Summer season’s gone… I haven’t been out there half as much as I would’ve wanted, unfortunately, and awhile back already we moved our camp back inside. Last night I went climbing with a couple of really good climbers. Way out of my league, I must say. It does get you out there, trying things you probably normally wouldn’t, but it also drains you so much faster, and sadly emphasizes what long way you still have to go. What long way I still have to go. I’m still feeling my underarms and my fingers feel like I have a bad case of arthritis. Luckily that’ll pass. We’ll see how things go in tomorrow’s session, because now that the Better Half is out of the house, and I don’t have anyone to justify my absence to (save for the cats, who get their food and play time in time and in the right amounts) I can go out a bit more often.

I have some good memories of the few times I did go outside this summer, though. I remember myself hanging from three cow slings tied together to my harness some 4 or 5 meters down the top of a cliff, on probably 10-12 meters from the wet, rocky bottom with my D700 and 70-200mm at the ready. I can tell you, that combination is a good dumbbell to do some arm training with 😀 Looking forward to next summer…
And yeah, I like details 😉
