Gas Prices

California is known for having some of the most expensive gas, but last night, getting gas this is what I saw.
That's right $1.79 for regular.  But what i really care about is the $1.99 for Supreme.  Also, this isn't some Rotten Robbies or something.  This is Chevron, and the Shell across the street was matching the price.  Who'd of thunk a year and half ago that we'd have a black man coming in to office as president and all gas would be under $2.

My First Lead Climb

For those of you who don't know what a lead climb is, it's a climb where you are trailing a rope behind you.  You attach the rope to bolts in the wall as you go up.  This means that most of the time you are above the point where you are attached to the wall. That means... longer fall, if you fall, higher pucker factor. 
This is a picture a friend of mine took from the ground.  It makes it all look grander then it really was, but there isn't any rope above me. Just below me.  And it is last connected to the wall about 5 ft below me. I made it up and down alive.  I'm not sure when i'll get the nerve up to do it again.
