Looking forward to the start of BLC 28, and to what may or may not be my last field season. Every year I say this is it, and then, the next year, I'm packing up to do it all over again. This year it's forested wetlands and high elevation pine forests. It's an early spring in the Rockies, so I think we'll start early. I put on weight over the winter, and although I'm running three times a week, I need to ramp up the execise and dial down the eating. My knees and hips don't care if the 10 ...
Looking forward to the start of BLC 28, and to what may or may not be my last field season. Every year I say this is it, and then, the next year, I'm packing up to do it all over again. This year it's forested wetlands and high elevation pine forests. It's an early spring in the Rockies, so I think we'll start early. I put on weight over the winter, and although I'm running three times a week, I need to ramp up the execise and dial down the eating. My knees and hips don't care if the 10 extra pounds is in my pack or on my body, and although my field crew is also getting older, oddly enough, the 35 year difference between me and them remains the same no matter how much they age. Maybe that's how I should approach retirement: I'll retire when my last crew member turns 30!

My Goals:
I want to get to 140 pounds. That is a really lean and healthy weight for me without being thin.

My Program:
Right now, just running and gardening. I think I need to add biking when the challenge starts.

Personal Information:
Research scientist from the Rocky Mountains. Irreverent, cynical, left-liberal, secular humanist. My idea of a great day is lying in my tent during a summer thunderstorm reading on my Kindle beside the high mountain lake where I will catch dinner when the storm stops. Add a big plus to that day if, when I arrived at that lake after a long hot hike, I was all alone, and felt free to peel off all my clothes and dive in.

Other Information:
My favorite books this year (so far) are All the Light We Cannot See and Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series. I've en hooked on these for a few months. If I could do anything I wanted for a week straight, I'd fish. I did that in Patagonia this winter --for more than a week-- and never got bored, but I'd like to do it more often here at home. But for now, I'm trying to make time to fish at least once a week.
