Catching up with Joe Kinder
It seems like every time I have the opportunity to sit down and write, edit vids, and be creative is when I am in a hotel. Something about a simple hotel room gets me creatively inspired and makes me want to be productive. I am in a La Quinta Inn right now in Las Vegas while the wind is blowing hard and a front is stirring up some gnarly weather.
Once again we (my girlfriend Colette and I) are on the road and ready for a HUGE trip abroad. I am headed to Europe for three months including Spain, France, Italy and Austria. Then we fly from Spain to South Africa for another two months. I have to say that this is probably the trip of a lifetime and I am REALLY excited. There are lots of perks in my life. I climb all the time, I don’t have a regular job, and I get to travel whenever and wherever I want. Now how is that for living the dream!? Things could honestly not be better.
Right before Colette and I moved out of our last house in Colorado we went through some emotional phases. The mountains of Colorado are no joke and this was our first time living in the real winter climate in a couple of years. Dark depressing days keep you inside a lot and I basically lived in my Titan Jacket and Micro Fleece Hoodies. With all of this inside time I made a couple of videos.
They are kind of artsy videos with the first video as the initial snowfall of the season.
And the second, was our torment and departure as climbers dealing with the off and on weather. Good times.
I look forward to blogging more for Eastern Mountain Sports and urge you all to check out my own site joekindkid.com. See you in the future!!!
