Reset Button


It is that time of the year again.  The ISA International Tree Climbing Championship (ITCC) begins this Friday, in Milwaukee WI.  This event has been a turning point for my professional year.  A reset button, a chance to see old friends, meet new climbers, give back a bit of what I have been given.

The ITCC is the starting point for me as a trainer.  Here I networked the connections, met the people and developed the avenues that allow me to train arborists for a living.

The ITCC is also the setting for my first novel.  Here I choose to begin the artistic pursuit of writing fiction.

As I prepare to load onto the motorcycle for the day and a half run west, it is with a bit of a renewed spirit and a firm look ahead at what the next year will hold for me as climber, trainer and author.

I hope to meet some of you there.  As always, I travel with books and a pen.  If you can stop by the work climb event, the Free Falling “book tour” will continue through the weekend!

Thanks all,

    • Anja,

      Thanks so much! I really appreciate the time you spent reading the book. Without the reader the whole process is useless! Missed seeing you at ITCC!
