    I Started Getting In to It Years Ago

    ....but I got too busy with work at the time and dropped it like a lot of things.  Now I want to pick it up again, although, I don't know if I would want to scale huge mountains...  I may get too freaked out for that... but I just love rocks and I like bouldering.

    ...or Used to Anyway
