Less passion, more peace.

I'm just curious if anyone else experienced this. Internally, I used to "burn really bright" with mountaineering topics.

Just a quick commercial for some Swedish buddies' new (totally not for profit) wiki-site for ski tours. It's an easy and intuitive interface and has potential to be a great resource for those of us who prefer to slide to and from our summits! So far just a few tours created in Scandinavia and the Alps but hopefully that will change quickly!

Life Insurance Policies and Climbing

I have a whole life policy and I supplement it with a term life insurance policy. I'm in the process of renewing the term life policy and the insurance company sent me a questionnaire. There were questions about climbing. I answered honestly. I'm a peak-bagger and sometimes I don the harness, tie-in and do some technical climbing, glacier travel, etc. Just basic Mountaineering. No international travel to extreme high altitudes and no big wall climbing. ...
