Bouldering

Last Saturday I took my daughter to Momentum in Lehi for her Christmas present. I knew she would be good at bouldering.. We climbed until our hands were too sore to continue.image

Winter ride

I took my boys and dogs for a winter ride this morning. We found this frozen section.IMG_2603

I rode across some frozen sections. This one didn’t hold me, so I kept pedaling to get back to the dirt before I got wet.

Charcloth

My boys and I went to Marty’s to make charcloth.  I hadn’t heard of it until about two weeks ago.  We made the charcloth on the BBQ and started a fire with flint and steel.  It was manly and I pounded my chest.

2014 was a good year

I have been horrible and blogging for the last six months, but I wanted to wrap up a few things.  I feels like 2014 was a turning point.  I decided to focus on being positive and trying new things, which led to some great things.  I went back to E*Trade and was promoted to the Stock Plans team.  I spent a lot of time being quiet and listening.  I had a goal to try or accomplish 12 new things.  I think I hit 37.  Here they are:

NPOST
Oscillating spindle sander
Japanese pull saw
Lathe project- ice cream scoop
Swim with nurse sharks

Tough Mudder #1- Glory Blades

We started at 9 am.  This was the first obstacle we had at Tahoe, and our first of the day.  We ran pretty far to get to the first obstacle, which kept the obstacles from getting jammed up.  I liked how they set it up.

Tough Mudder #2- Kiss Of Mud

This was when we knew it was going to be a sloppy, fun mess.
