I am most likely a member of the New Aquarians

I came across this survey on Fella's blog. Apparently, like my dear cousin, I am most likely a member of the New Aquarians.

This wknd, pk and I went walked out our front door, along the water, and followed the Capilano river all the way up to the Cleveland Dam at Capilano Lake. It was a good 3hr or so hike.

On our walk back home, we stopped off for a cold beverage and fuel on the patio. We then continued to head back home and we passed by a local bike shop. I've been thinking of getting a bike for the longest while both for exercise and mode of transport. Since pk was going to be in LA all this week, and I needed a nice easy way to get to work, I thought it was the perfect time to buy a bike.

So this is my brand spankin' new shiny silver bicycle. I don't think I've had a bike since I grew out of my last one back when I was 13 or something. I haven't been on one for almost as long. It's a pretty nice ride, and as they say, it's just like riding a bicycle. It's been great riding to and from work so far... as long as it doesn't rain :P

Hiking The Chief

This weekend, pk and I hiked the Stawamus Chief in Squamish. It's about a 2hr hike up 550 metres to the top... crazy uphillness all the way. It was quite the workout. I'm definitely not as fit as I'd like to be. Had to take it slow on the way up but the view from the top was awesome. While at the top, eating my blueberry cheesecake powerbar, a bold little chipmunk jumped on my knee! (See photo below for the little jerk) It's a good thing I was sitting down or I may have fallen off the edge of the Chief! Hopefully we can do the same hike again very soon. Loads of fun. To see the view from the top, check out this video.
