New Solutions this morning — the La Sportiva variety. My climbing gym, to their credit, is officially selling La Sportiva Solutions now! And, miracles do happen, they had my size. I took the opportunity and applied my store credit toward the purchase of a fine new pair of these quality climbing shoes. I had forgotten how stiff and tight a new pair of Solutions can be, so I spent a half an hour going through some necessary pains in beginning the break-in period and process with these new gems. I walked around in them, stretched in them, and kept them on my feet as long as I could until I couldn’t take it anymore, then shed them and set them aside to talk to a nurse friend of mine who is a great climber. She’s always pleasant to talk to. She always lets me know that she’s there for me if I need a belay. That’s really cool. I was going to go to Vehicle Reg this morning, but decided I’m going to tackle that tomorrow because I don’t feel like doing it today. I just have to renew my registration and get my tags, but parking is such a hassle at the courthouse that I just dread going over there for anything. So I’m going to lunch with a good friend and then going back to the climbing gym for a second round of Solution break-in and actual wall time. I have a lot more confidence in the La Sportiva Solutions than in most other climbing shoes. Definitely one pair I must have in my quiver.
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
