Rocks Along The Road

Climbing. It's what I do all the time, better yet, it's who I am. Here's where I'll share pictures, trip reports and what I'm thinking. Enjoy!

Oh what a different twelve hours can make…

Holding a cold beer counts as icing a finger injury, right?

Fun(?) Driving Facts

I left New Hampshire on Monday to drive to Boulder, Colorado. It’s about a 2200 mile drive once you factor in my mistakes, google map’s mistakes, and stops and all that. So here’s how it happened:

Monday: 725 miles/12 hours

Tuesday: 850 miles/15 hours

Wednesday: 625 miles/9 hours

So, in short, including stops (while driving) I averaged almost 60mph for the entire trip, OR about 38mph including the time I slept. That’s roughly 25% faster than a bald eagle. (Conversion to laden, unladen, European, and African swallows unknown.)

That’s all to say I’m in Colorado, very tired, and occasionally seeing yellow and white lines in weird places.

Watching Into The Wild to prepare for driving out to Colorado tomorrow for school. No worries, I won’t be heading to Alaska anytime soon.
