Dear Family & Friends:

I hope you are all having a great summer. We are.

I posted a few photos on my website from our 2008 Everest trip. After returning from Nepal in mid-April, I rested a month. Ollie and I are now back to full time training for 2009. Early next year, I will give you more details on my plans to climb Mt. Everest in 2009.

On June 9, 2008, Ollie and I entered a 5K race at the local high school. I pushed him in his stroller. We took first place! Well, it was first place in my age category, but we were proud nevertheless. I have posted a photo of us celebrating our win under “My Training Partner.”

Ollie and I have entered the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. The race is on September 14, and we have signed up for the Classic course. Ollie will participate in the run and bikes courses, and I will participate in the swim, run and bike courses. I will push Ollie in a stroller in the run course and pull him in his trailer in the bike course. If you are interested in learning more about this triathlon or perhaps tracking our progress during the race, here is the website:

We are off to Hawaii tomorrow with our whole family (23 of us). Later in the summer, I plan to ride my Harley Davidson Road King Classic to Banff Park in Canada. Along the way, I plan to do some fly fishing in the rivers and streams.

God’s blessings to all of you and your families.
