Welcome, one and all, to the new web hosting company for Misdirected!
Doesn’t look any different to you?
Good. It isn’t supposed to. The whole point of working feverishly the last 3 days was to get everything moved over and duplicated so the user experience stayed the same. The difference on my end will be the lower subscription fees and the improved tech support. The difference on your end should be improved load times and increased up-time.
And a big shout-out to Mr. D. Cromwell, who introduced me to Sectorlink in the first place. Nice to have a knowledgeable reader base!
Onwards and Upwards
So, with that little project out of the way, where is Misdirected heading next?
We have a few fitness-related projects in the pipeline currently. Next month is the Run For The Zoo 5K. Though we won’t be running the race, it will still be the first 5K I have ever been involved in, whether running, walking, or crawling. I am really excited. Someday being able to do a 5K has been on my “if I ever lose weight” list for a long time.
Stone Age Gym remains on our radar. In fact, the Founder and President of Stone Age read our article about his gym. He then reached out to me to invite us back sooner rather than later. We’ve been signed up for the Top Rope Belay class when we head back, courtesy of Stone Age. I’ll be sure to let everyone know how that goes just as soon as our feet touch the ground again.
Lastly, I am dead serious about hitting the La Luz Trail this summer. That is going to mean a lot of conditioning at the new gym. We’ll have to purchase some gear, which will be supported entirely by Patreon supporters. And, it will require quite a bit of practice.
Practice? Yeah, funny you should mention that…
The Hills Are Alive
So, how does one practice for heading straight up the side of a mountain?
By spending some time in the mountains not heading straight up, right?
During the intervals between tech support calls this weekend, I started doing some web research. Lo and behold, some enterprising soul has created a website outlining trails through the Sandias. Now a couple of these hikes look almost as challenging as the La Luz. But the majority of them look like great day hikes suitable for training.
Sandia Mountains foothills, here we come! Expect reports (and pictures!) as we tackle a few of these routes.
Training for the “I Am Climbing La Luz Because Bariatric Surgery Works” event kicks off this week.
The event title could probably use some work.
