The Next Step for VstheMountain.com

On August 12, 2016, we finally climbed Capitol Peak and finished the Colorado 14ers. It was an amazing personal accomplishment and something I will proudly brag about for the rest of my life. I did not journal it as I did the rest of our 14er adventures, however, and I don’t have a handy trip report ready to post. There is a video (sans music) that I posted over on Youtube, a bare bones telling of mostly the trek across the Knife Edge. If you can make it through 40 minutes of watching people climbing, more power to you.




So a great funk fell over me with regards to this website afterwards. What now? Should that be the end of the story? Should I not renew the web url? Does anyone care?
On a personal note, 2016 saw the winding down of my marriage. My climbing partner and best friend were moving on from me, and it became time to figure out where my life will go next.


I’m still trying to figure that out. But I do think maybe this site is worth keeping around, and maybe I can pitch in a random thought here and there. Maybe “VstheMountain” means more to
me than just climbing an actual mountain. It always kind of did, but when there were literal mountains to climb it seemed more obvious.


This year, as a newly single individual, I’m coming back around to learning about who I was, who I am, and who I want to be. I’ve rediscovered many aspects of myself that I left idle and abandoned for far too long, and the result was my psyche suffered from these omissions to my real personality. I'm going to go ahead and chronicle this journey and leave it to the reader if this is interesting enough to them, or just simply not in their wheelhouse. This blog is for me more than anyone else though, so I'll just do what I want to, no offense.


So you can read the new blogs, or you can just look through the old mountain logs. I’ll just leave this here. Thanks
