Another Blog You Would Enjoy

Every once in a while, I just want to point you to the list of blogs over to the right. I don’t put TONS of links up there, but I usually put up links to blogs and sites I don’t want to forget or lose track of. This blog is written by my friend Claire who is doing some very interesting things with her life.

When we saw Claire recently, she told us about her next gig. Apparently the guy who was interviewing her spent quite a bit of time elucidating every negative that comes with the job. It’s going to be very, very cold in the mountains in Utah. She said the boots she purchased at REI had tags that asked “Are you going to the South Pole?” or something equally appealing. The cold is only part of the fun to come.

I know I’m way too much of a comfort loving person to enjoy the notion of living out of a backpack and spending my days sitting still in a bird blind waiting for the next grouse to come flying by. But, I admire the work that Claire and Justin are doing, and I wanted to share it with you.

  1. Wow. The really cool thing about tromping around in frigid mountains in Utah and sleeping in a tent is how much it makes you appreciate not tromping around in frigid mountains in Utah and sleeping in a tent. I guess I’ve gotten old. I’d be all over the grouse, though.

  2. I’m not sure I would have enjoyed it in my twenties. I know it’s not my thing now. When I was pregnant with my daughter (now 16.5 years old) we went to New Mexico for a bird-watching weekend. We stayed at a bed and breakfast and took a basket of home made yummies the owner provided us at 5:00am to a nearby reserve to watch the morning ‘show.’ Sitting all bundled up with fresh scones and home made hot chocolate is more my thing.
