It begins...

Yes, I've officially jumped on the blogger bandwagon. It occurred to me tonight that I was blogging in my head during my shower. I used to talk to myself, but it seems the conversation in my head has become one-sided as of late...not sure if that's a sign of diminished mental capacity or improving mental health. So the first thing to explain is the blog's title and address...

'twas a midsummer's night in the midst of camp 4 and not a climber was sleeping, not even the squirrels...(or the bears for that matter--ever tried to sleep while a bear rattles the metal box full of food about 20 feet from your oh so very flimsy tent?)

Yeah, so even though Josh and I knew each other for quite a while, we officially became an item (or, rather, it became clear we would soon get over our age difference hang ups and become an item) on a trip to Yosemite. On that trip we stayed in Camp 4 (duh, where else would a climber stay while in the valley?) and climbed the route "Snake Dike" on HalfDome (thus the blog address). I tried other addresses...camp4, perpetual chaos, controlled chaos, perpetual motion...they were all taken.

ok. good, I was hoping you didn't choose to name it snakedike because you just really liked that name. because, yeah. dike. at least there's a story behind it!

LOL I swear, I tried about 30 different names (that were relevant) before I settled on that one. Of course it was available. And the stupid girl that got "camp4" (what I really wanted) hasn't updated in, like 3 years. I gotta figure out how to put the explanation at the top of the page though so everyone sees it ;-)

and to think I was also on Half Dome at the same time...but with a guy...who I didn't marry.
