Big Bear Snowshoeing Trip January 24, 2005

Snowshoeing? Yes, it is snowshoeing… the newest sport we have tried. (Jan 22nd 2005 Sat.) We didn’t try snowshoeing in Lake Tahoe and decided that we need to try to drive JP’s new used car for a longer trip – unfortunately we don’t have a lot of budget for a weekend getaway. Therefore, we just had a one day trip!!

It was fun!! It was the first time we two actually hike on snow trail. The only drawback is that Southern Calf. is too warm for snow, even at the 7,000ft level. The snow at the bottom of the mountain was kind of dirty and mixed with mud. The upper part was really snowy white and pretty.

However, after 2 and a half hours hiking (extremely exhausting for lack of oxygen), we still couldn’t reach a peak to have some good view. We did manage to climb up to a small hill to get a peek of the downhills. But I have to admit that I was kind of frightened when coming down from the steep slope. Of course he laughed at me – what so ever – it was my idea to climb up the hill. If we had seen more good views, the trip would have been more rewarding.

PP drew a conclusion from the trip – he likes hiking and snowboarding better than snow shoeing – for he likes to walk faster and slide down faster. He is a speeder! Well, I like to try anything new. So it is quite an experience. I would like to go some places with fascinating views and snowshoeing!

Just for the record, we went to the discovery center first and then went to 38 east.


Why is “Faraway, so close”? January 16, 2005

Copied and pasted from J.P.’s original post –

In the five years the we spent together, for two and half years we were separated by either pacific ocean or the north america continental. Now I feel thankful that we are together. we might have to be apart far away again very soon. But we are alway so close.

It is private.

When people say “can I have some privacy”, it usually means that it’s some stuff that means nothing to others. Well, this place is where we publish our privacy.

We have always wanted to have a place where we can have a journal of our time together. What did we do? Where did we go? What did we eat? Things like that, things that no one else cares. But she has been busy, I have been busy, so we still don’t have this journal.

This monday, when I looked at the calendar and realized that the most important annual event is coming up next month, I had an idea. Why don’t I open a webolog account, put some nonsense, and give to her as a gift? We can use it as our journal book. It is a way better valentine gift idea than those items having been used for hundreds of years.
