As a young climber from Maryland living in an Oldsmobile in the early 90s, before social media, professional climbers and cell phones, when you sent post cards to people to stay in touch, there weren't a lot of role models, and there definitely wasn't a clear path, to anything. I met Leona while she was working pumporama in rifle, 20 years ago--at 4'10" her lower legs were too short to even get the official double knee bar rest halfway up, and there were plenty of other moves that were well out of her reach too. She was about my mom's age, traveling in a battered blue van with her partner Brent--classy, underspoken, with an intelligent and kind sense of humor. I was trying my first "project" and since I'd fallen on it 4 times I was frustrated, dejected and felt I should climb easier routes until I was good enough to come back and try later. At camp, I told Leona i was embarrassed to be flailing so much on a route that was clearly too hard for me, that I could probably never do. Leona just laughed and said "steph, you're doing it with one fall, of course you can redpoint it--I can't even do all the moves on my project, and I think I can do it!" And she did, not long after. Sometimes you meet the right person at the right time, and they tell you something you never forget, something that changes your perspective forever. It was so good to bump into Leona and Brent today in maple, all these years later, and find them still quietly crushing...and get to thank her for it β˜ΊοΈβ€οΈπŸ˜‡ #rolemodel @evolvusa @mammutna @kavu @cw_hemp

another magic day @ospreypacks @garminoutdoor @kavu

you don't have to install panels to use solar power, and you have double the positive impact of recycling if you repurpose or keep up the things you have--the longer we can extend the life of stuff that already exists, the less stuff goes into landfills πŸ‘πŸ»Baking bread and doing laundry today with a bunch of free energy from the 🌞 @gosunstove @kavu @mammutna @cw_hemp
