Howard's Home Page and Adventure Guide

On the Summit Ridge of Starlight Peak - Sierras

Between a Rock and a.....

hard place, wet place, cold place, dark place,..... you fill in the blank.


You're in and "It's time to crank". This page center's around one key word. The word that can bring your adrenaline up in a heartbeat. The word that propels you to speeds only Peregrine Falcons dream of, the word that keeps you from being a human satellite. GRAVITY! So much of my outdoor energy is devoted to harnessing it, controlling it, cursing it and loving it.

When was the last time GRAVITY got a hold of you and took you for a ride? Who was in control? What was the outcome? Did you walk away from it or limp? You will find some stories, some advice and a few "words of wisdom" about my friend GRAVITY.

What makes me tick?

These are the things that "recharge my batteries". So to that end let me share with you some of my adventures, some were successes, some were not, but I would not call them failures, only an education, a life experience, something that tests my physical and mental abilities.

I would like to thank my family for their support, and my friends for the same along with their competitiveness and humor. These are guys you can trust your life to. You know who you are. Anyway enough of the mushy stuff on with the adventures.

I post most of my picture on WebShots so check them out here.  More pictures on Picasa here.  Also have some old pictures, stories and links to some trips below.

    --Words of Wisdom

    Most of these little sayings are things that get blurted out during some of my outdoor activities. The origin for most of these are from my climbing adventures, but all have their applications in other activities like mountain biking or hiking. I have used a number of these at work and they have been entertaining for some.
