10 Essentials: Questions

How did you get involved with The Mountaineers?

A very good friend of mine took me to a rock climbing demo The Mountaineers did out on Icicle Road in Leavenworth. I am embarrassed to admit it but I had not spent much time outside at all. It was one of those perfect summer Eastern Washington days that sold me....

What motivates you to get outside with us?

I enjoy learning and that is what The Mountaineers is all about. I always take something away from the classes and trips. It is great being outside with like minded people. I am very proud to be a part of the Mountaineers!!!

What's your favorite Mountaineers memory?

Snowboarding Plumbers Peak with the Ski and Snowboarding Mountaineers Class. It was a bluebird weekend and the group was fantastic! We had a LOT of fun that weekend.

Who/What inspires you?

Being outside and challenging myself. It is always humbling to me to look at a mountain and then after a few hours or days, standing on top of it.

What does adventure mean to you?

Doing things that most people don't or won't do.

Lightning Round
Sunrise or sunset? Sunrise.
Smile or game face? Smile.
What's your 11th essential?  JetBoil and instant coffee...every trip!
What's your happy place? Being on the other side of getting outside of my comfort zone.
If you could be a rock star at anything overnight, what would it be? Skiing, I started very late in life.
