I've always been impressed with Jason Kehl. He's one of those climbers that does things his own way. He also has a lot of flair about him, which I also have a ton of respect for - not too many climbers can pull off a Marilyn Manson look. When I bought the Rock Lounge in Durango, I made sure to purchase a lot of climbing holds designed by Kehl. He's got such a talent for art, and that shows in his hold designs. I was excited to watch his latest trip to the boulders of Macedonia... First off, who thinks Macedonia and bouldering? I don't, so that's why I love this guy. Take a watch...

Forbes called it the most wonderful tax evasion day of the year, but I like to call it the day I support my favorite charities... Some call it the day we "don't support local", but I call it the day I helped my local trail organization. I'm not just saying this for the sake of sounding like a saint, nope! I did my fair share of shopping on Cyber Monday. In fact, most, if not all, of my shopping is done on Cyber Monday, but I like to know that my money is going well-beyond the businesses like Backcountry, Zappos and BestBuy. To that end, I have installed a killer app called SocialTransactions!
The app is simple to use, and at its core the solution is just a browser extension that is easily installed in about 10 seconds. SocialTransaction works by looking at the links on the shopping page you've navigated to, directly (like a Google search). If one of those links has a transaction engine behind it (meaning you can buy something) and you make a purchase, SocialTransactions works. Almost invisibly, SocialTransactions takes a small cut from purchase (at no extra cost to you, the shopper) and collects a sales commission, which is sent to a non-profit of your choice (assuming they work with SocialTransactions). Here is a list of all the non-profit organizations they work with - http://www.socialtransactions.com/organizations/

Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen Covney (RIP) wrote about having a spiritual connection. That's a great idea, but who has the time? Meditation, yep, I'd love to but I can't sit still for that long! So what can we all do to act like the successful? Simple, set goals! Over the past few weeks, I've learned how important writing, talking about and believing in your goals really is. Even if you don't accomplish them, so what. At least you have goals that direct you somewhere to some thing/purpose/ideal/passion/etc.
