Bob Coomber (aka 4wheelbob) contact?

Does anyone have the contact info on Bob Coomber? Since he's an avid wheelchair hiker, he might be a valuable source of info for a little project I'm working on.

New Climbing Partners

So I don't have hardly any new climbing partners, and the ones I do are folks I've met far from home, in places like Glacier NP and the Tetons.

Reason for this is that I've lived where I'm at long enough that I know a hell of a lot of people who hike and climb. I know you can never have too many friends, and especially never too many who hike and climb. But in ...

A Hard Day's Night

I was going through some of my things and ran across a piece of writing I thought would be fun to share. Dan Petchnick was one of my high school teachers and had a big influence on me. He not only made me want to climb, but he made me want to succeed in anything and everything I encounter in my life. And for that I am grateful.
