Opening excerpt from the book currently being written... Pops Take Us To The Top. The story about how Father and Son rebuild their relationship by hiking and ultimiately summiting of Mt Whitney, at 14508’ the highest Mountain Peak in the 48 United States... . About the Journey……
The spirit and metaphorical essence of this book was inspired by my son, Sam, and I reconciling our relationship through the sport of hiking and on Sept, 13, 2016 ultimate summiting of Mt. Whitney, the highest Mountain Peak in the contiguous 48 United States . This story offers hope to those whose life and relationships are in need of healing and repair and evidence that many times when we let it be, let it go, face ourselves and start to focus on the changes we need to make in our own lives, those around us will take notice. This story also tells the journey faced by those in recovery, it doesn't matter who or what we are recovering from, and the impact that world has on relationships. This book is also about facing one’s fears, insecurities, anxieties, lack of esteem self doubt and failures.
This book is also a how to on planning and preparation on what you need to know to hike a difficult and challenging mountain trail. The fact that over 30,000 people each year attempt to summit Whitney, with only 10,000 able to reach the summit peak attests to the odds not in the hikers favor and as this book will show, was a powerful reminder to my son and I. That said, Mt. Whitney is a very doable hike and an unbelievable accomplishment and for me a Top 5 life time experience accomplished with another Top 5 Lifetime experience, my son Sam.

The best things in life are totally free. Unless you want a shitter. Then it’s $10/night, apparently.
So glad I finally got to (briefly) experience the beautiful Bugaboos. Our backyard is the best backyard.
Meeting Monday straight in the face, looking toward the adventures this week will bring. --- We have a sunset hike planned for this week, if weather holds up, and we are already planning this weekend's camping trip to make up for last. ---

I don’t write all the time. I don’t even write most of the time. When I’m off I climb ⛰ and plant 🌳. But writing is so very important to me. And shortly I’m going to be ready to start kicking ass at word count again.
