Summer ‘10 Activities – Climb, Camp, Hike and Cycle away!

Alrite summer is just around the corner! Its the time we folks in Northwest look forward to! The entire misery of dark winters and rainy days is worth the gorgeous 3 months of summer we get around here!

I have been meaning to do a few outdoorsy things this summer, and wanted to started chalking my list here so that friends and family can join in, talk me in to and out of few things :) –

  • Rock-climbing & Bouldering
    • A weekend bouldering trip to Squamish!
    • Climbing as many single-pitch 5.8s as I can. May be pick up Exit-38 Wednesdays!
    • Goal: Outer space (?) (July 2nd week or Aug 2nd week) – Outer space is a six pitch climb near Leavenworth, and it has been my goal since i started cragging a couple of years ago. Given my space and rock-climbing touch, it might not happen this year but still a worthy goal.
  • Mountaineering
    • Mt. Adams (June 19th?)
    • Mt. Baker (June 26th)
    • Mt. Shuskan (?)
    • Goal: Lead a trip up Mt. Rainier (July 17th), may be two
    • Goal: One ice-climb, may be Mt. Hood late in the season (Aug 1st week?)
  • Cycling
    • Flying Wheels Summer Century! (June 12th)
    • Goal: Lead a week-long trip along Oregon Coast (week of July 24th), in preparation to India biking adventure.
  • Motorcycling
    • Now that i still have my SV650s for this season I would love to do some long riding and track days with it. I have already been eyeing some routes.
    • Goal: Do at-least one long ride and one track day!
  • Backpacking
    • Yosemite (?) (Late summer Aug(?))
    • Need suggestions and friends to go with!
  • Hiking & Camping
    • Granite Mountain
    • Camp Muir
    • Goal: At-least do one camping trip with friends
  • Try a new activity
    • Rafting down Yakima river! (July 4th –?)
    • Sea-kayaking or Sailing
    • Goal: Learn to swim in open water

May be I should make a outdoor activities calendar. Making it public is a little itchy but hey its summer in the northwest!!
