Friday evening I dined at the McMenamins Market Street Pub. It is your typical McMenamins pub with a long copper bar and plenty of large booths. This locale is located near the Portland State University campus and home to many memories for me. Often I would be found here Monday evenings participating with the German conversation group Stammtisch that met here. Within the walls of this pub I have experienced the highs of celebrating my birthday to the lows of being stood up. I am pleased to report that I have a good experience this time with very pleasant company and yummy tater tots.
In October 2006 I took the plunge and applied for the Mazamas Climb Leadership Development Program. In December I learned that I had been accepted. The inspiration for this blog is to share with you my progress along this path.
The content of this blog will not be limited to that endeavor, since there are other aspects of my life.
