NCOBS throwback: My name is "O"

"O" lays down some lyrics as we wait for banquet at Cedar Rock, 2009.

Remote signal faded, yet transmission strong... ...


It has been quite the time passing since my last writing...

 Summits Beyond is now officially back in production with lots brewing for the summer! 
 I hope you will be interested to dust off this ole' web address and entice yourself to follow along with the latest "what's the what"with me and those associated with Summits Beyond.

Lots of Program Administration on the professional side of things. Outdoor Action at Princeton is in full-bore swing as we prepare for Frosh Trip.

Several  friends have been able to visit Chateau Kshon in Hopewell, and it's been great!

Recent guests include:
  • Alexis Jean Cymbolin
  • Kelly Biasiolli
  • Sheamus Burns
  • Mike & Lauren Neuvel
  • Jim Madison

As Summer carries on past its own height (as in, the equinox was nearly a week ago), the heat swelters on in New Jersey, but so too do the adventures up ahead. Stayu tuned for trip reports from:
  • regular climbing trips at the Gunks in New York
  • new adventures in surfing (my next new sport!)
  • sea kayaking around the greater NYC area
  • 2 weeks of Outward Bound work in July
  • a Fall trip back to Patagonia, objective: Cerro San Lorenzo

Well now, the Summer/Fall trips list should keep me quite busy. What adventures do you have planned? Backpacking Europe? Learning how to knit? Maybe Alpine summits in New Zealand? Perhaps learning a new language? Adventures await around every corner... 

See you there,

Kevin Shon
