My Locale Southcentral Texas
About Me A little bit of everything....:UL backpacking, attempts of Rainer, Hood, Three-Fingered Jack (them 3, me 0), cycling, kayaking, krav maga, scotch from Islay, Tough Mudder coming up (what was I thinking?), etc....

Attainable Goals: successful climb of 14K+ peak, thru-hike something with two or three letters, kayak during a snowfall.

Silly Goals: Triple Crown before my last breath, summit Vinson Massif before any other puertorican does it.
