Stalled out at 990 000

I had plans to finish my millionth foot before I flew to England for a wedding but I stalled and did not finish it. The day after the Spearhead traverse I drove up to Cypress with thoughts of touring 10 000 feet on the hill, but the pouring rain washed away my drive. I sat in the car and realized that I would prefer to finish my million feet on a nice sunny day. Not a rainy day. I sat and pondered for awhile before I drove away.

I won’t have time to do a hundred 10 000 footers but as in high school I am happy with an 80%. Aim high but be happy with 80%. The season was exceptional and I will never complain about not achieving my 100 days, actually it gives me another year to attempt it. I learned more and realized what is needed to achieve this lofty goal and may try again. As for this year I explored a lot and skied more new lines and am psyched that there is more discovery left out there.

When I get home I will get all the stats off my log book and figure out all the details of my season.

    Hey Greg,
    Awesome effort for the season. Loved following along. Good talking to you "en route" while racing at Sunlight this season. Just thought I would throw in a comment inspired by your comment about giving up hard rock climbing because of your shoulder. I work in Orthopaedic surgery and know it does not have to be that way. The Canadian system sucks for elective stuff like shoulder reconstruction but if you ever want to get back at it, there are options with great results. Give me a shout and we can talk if the idea ever moves you. Hope to see you next season.
