I have loved the outdoors for as long as I can remember. I am a math professor and I love my job...can't believe they pay me to play with math. I am retired Air Force and was a B-52 gunner for most of my career. I love to climb anything that goes up or is interesting. I have a place for people to stay if you are doing climbs in the Sierras. If want info on a particular peak or highpoint, just email me. If want some company let me know:)
My latest project is trying to ascend to the highest point of each of the 280 state parks of California. This include all areas listed on their website. My hope is to be able to submit this list to peakbagger...once completed.
