So anybody from the 'house making it to Texas this April? I live minutes from where it will be and there are some awesome bur oaks I'm sure they will use.

LJ, MB you guys arent that far!

This pic was in a big ol bur about a mile or two from where it will be.

I am thinking no. My wife keeps telling me to do it.

I feel outta shape and plus I didn't make the strongest showing last year.

It is fun. The price is a steal just to run through the course......

I may give it a go after all.

Lately I have been enjoying the hang gliding....that is addicting.

You are giving it a go right Rob????

Try being a Tech or a Judge. The competing got to be too much for me, it was too much like work. Going to the comps and volunteering as a tech has given me a new perspective. All of the fun, none of the nerves..

Dont know, at this point my interests are in production climbing $$- but I may get the urge to compete between now and then. Been playing in some big bur oaks lately and its a blast.

prior to the comp on the 3rd is a climbing workshop-maybe helpful for the comp or for the CTW exam.

The time is almost upon us, lots of out of towners here already. Bunch of em camped out on a trampoline in a live oak Abram Zies suspended - we also had a B-day party on it and zip lined kids off it!! Pics soon.

No, I'm not competing this year but will probably wish I was Friday. Lots going on trying to grow the business.

Guess there wont be anybody else from the 'house here. Unless Nate decides to show up. I'll try and get some good pics. Fierce local rivalry just a day away!
