Anja and I got married April 3 in Bishop, CA (picasaweb.google.com/anjakenwedding) and starting July 9th we plan to drive to my brothers house in Boulder starting our year long honeymoon. July through November we'll be living out of our SMB and traveling and then going internationally. The focus of our travels will be seeing family, friends, and climbing trips which require time and conditioning but often little money. These plans are anything but certain at this point but it may go something like this:
July Colorado/Wyoming (Anja's brother lives in Jackson, Wy)
September Yosemite/Mt Shasta (friends weddings and climb El Cap)
October Yosemite/Vegas climbing area (Red Rocks)/Eastern Utah climbing area (Indian Creek)
November Indian Creek/Vermont (Anja's family)/Pennsylvania (Anja's grandma)
December Boulder (Anja will stay in Vermont)
January Florida Keys (my Aunt's house)/Thailand (29 days) (Railey and Ton Sai)
February Thailand/Vietnam (21 days) (Ha Long Bay)
March China (14 days) (Yangshuo)/ Nepal (25 days) (Annapurna Circuit)
April Turkey (7 days) (Antalya and Geryikbayin)/Greece (21 days) (Kalymnos - Mediterranean climbing island)
May Sicly (7 days), Sardinia (9 days) (Ogliastra)
June Croatia (7 days), Italy (14 days) (the Dolomites)
I know California, Southern Utah, and Southern Colorado fairly well but much of our time in the SMB will be spent in Wyoming, Montana, Banff, and Idaho so if anyone has tips for those areas let me know? Keep in mind our rig is only 2wd. Also if anyone up for a visit from some dirtbag climbers and wants to offer up a parking spot for a night anywhere that we could plugin and crashout for the night that would be awesome to.
Last, while we are traveling we would LOVE it if people came out and meet us for the weekend or a longer time in the States or internationally. Bring booze and firefood.
One of the highlights of our 2007 month long trip to Thailand (kathailand.blogspot.com) was our 5 friends who meet up with us on that trip. We will be blogging this trip at kagetavan.blogspot.com so I you want to hear about our travels add the blog to your favorites list. Let me know if you'd be interested in meeting up with us anywhere.
Ken and Anja
