    What, no bouldering? tee-hee
  6. Luke?

    Sup boys. Things are still going well here in MGL; for the last 6 months I've been doing corporate communications work for Ivanhoe Mines. The kid is doing well, running all over the place and starting to get pretty close to saying words. http://photos-c.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v132/226/49/25901538/n25901538_32621310_380.jpg http://photos-b.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v132/226/49/25901538/n25901538_32621313_1160.jpg Just got back from a week in the US leading a delegation of Mongolian media (6 tv stations, 4 newspapers) on a mine study tour of Kennecott Utah Copper in Salt Lake City. I secretly lusted after going bouldering at Little Cottonwood, Ibex and Joe's Valley, but alas it was not in the cards. Etc.
  7. Black Forest?

    Where the fuck are you going Kix!?
  8. That's right you wankers. I'm coming home with the wife and our daughter for two weeks of NW rain and general holiday family time, seeing as it has been two years since I left. We are having a small baby shower/welcome to the USA party at my family's house on the south side of Greenlake. Anyway, thought a couple of you folks might be interested, and there are a few of you I wouldn't mind sharing a few laughs with. Plus we'll provide food and some beer/wine whatever. Anyone ever thinking about coming to Mongolia could also abuse us as a resource. Wednesday December 20, 5-8pm. PM or email me on gmail for directions: bataa32 5738 Ashworth Ave N

  10. Coming Home: Baby Shower/Party 12-20

    haha, true that! No doubt there are tough moments, but generally Amarlin sleeps through the night and has never been a crying baby. Everything else has been going great as well, she loves to play. I give credit to her super mix of genes: 1/4, Uriankhai Mongol, 1/4 Khalkh Mongol, 1/8 Italian, 1/8 Sweedish, 1/8 German and then Irish and English.

    Maybe Ramutas could glue some cloth to a slab of Stealth. ; ) Even though she is only 4.5 months old she has a mean grip. Try and find really small "captains of crush" as well...

    another year of pulling down on mud with the 3B's (bonfires, bears, bongs)? Sounds like a good time, you crazy kids have fun!
  15. Baby Girl Distelhorst

    We had a baby girl tonight, 8:55pm Ulaanbaatar time, 3.9kg So far her and mom are doing well. Should be back at home in about 36hours on Monday.
  16. Baby Girl Distelhorst

    Thanks guys! She is doing well so far, not crying too much, nice yellow poop and loves to look around and interact.
  17. Baby Girl Distelhorst

    Well, just home from the hospital yesterday. We are going to try and come home for Christmas and New Years, so here's hoping! Both are doing fine, I have much better pics now and will try to post one or two tonight when I get home.
  18. Baby Girl Distelhorst

    She has a first named, but we haven't finalized the middle name yet (down to two) Her first name is Amarlin, emphasis on the first "a", it means peaceful. It is an old name, my wife and I have never met anyone with it before.
  19. There's no place like home!

    Yeah, I miss the PNW as well.....we are going to try and come home for christmas and new years though.... have fun at home Tim!
  20. Mount Baker highway crags

    uuhhh, mile marker 45 or something.... mtnfreak knows. Some are good, some are ok. You can do some longer ones if you link them up, can get pretty tough. That warm up is like .10+ or something? dyno at the end. weird dihedral is cool. Shorty is really powerful....
  21. Kurt E. Fickeisen Trust Fund

    Fickeisen!? and here I thought Distelhorst was odd....
  22. Kurt injured?

    Get better soon Kurt. I remember the first all ages PC I went to where the first thing Kurt did was get me a beer. Quick and healthy recovery wishes from MGL.

    yeah bearded vulture/Lammergeier. I was really happy because I had never seen one before and that afternoon I saw two adults and one juv. still in the nest. No news on it this year yet. Migratory birds are increasing here though and I believe WCS people will be back to do more tests. Political climate is pretty shitty, just read my site. Mama is big, only 3.5/4 more weeks. We had another sonogram today and the doc said 100% a girl, so here's hoping!
