Where’s Waldo?

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

Hello America! I’m now patrolling the Caribbean off the coast of Antigua. As you may know I lecture occasionally on cruise ships. I’m on Silversea now – a high end small ship. It only has suites and balconies. I gave them an hour of hiking info, then a talk on bicycling and in 3 days I’ll lecture on Yosemite. There are several folks here wanting to make the trip and I will give them the 4-1-1.

We are spending Christmas in 75 degree temps. Sorry to all readers who are in a deluge or blizzard. About 100 guests did not make their flights out of England for this cruise. I got in 2 scuba dives at Grand Turk and did a kayak/snorkel trip today near St Johns. These islands are neat but they get slammed every 10 years or so with a Hurricane.

I’m working with REI to set up the spring Half Dome presentation schedule. I’ll post them to the website once we bottom out. They will begin in March. I just heard that REI is going to build a store in Dublin, CA – near Pleasanton. My next one coming up is Jan 15 in Sonora. I’ll give 2 talks: 1. Someday Never Comes and 2. Half Dome in a day – Anyone can do it.  If you are nearby, come to St at Patrick’s church. More details as we get close.

Internet on board is 45 cents a minute so I am not keeping up with too much at home or at Yosemite. If any big news comes out feel free to write up a guest blog on it and I’ll post it.

    Yes, all in the Sonora area or visiting, please do come. St. Patrick’s Church on Jackson St. in Sonora is hosting this fine event – it is open to all ages teen through retired, and to the community at large. 10am Motivational Talk from Mr. Half Dome himself and 2pm for the classic you too can hike Half Dome talk – from the experienced one himself. We’d love to have you there – attend one or both on Jan. 15
