Skyclimber is out of control and Hawk is brandishing his tomahawk. A fine mess we've got ourselves into!

I've been posting for a couple weeks, and figured I should get around to this thread sooner or later. So here I am.

I'm currently a student at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. I just finished up my fourth year of college, but I'm starting all over again! I've been to three schools in the past four years - first at Seton Hall, then at a local community college, then I took time off to take a semester course with NOLS, then back to the community college, last fall I studied Adventure Education at Prescott College in AZ, and now I'm in art school (and plan on staying there!).

The past two years I've spent trying to choose between art and climbing (not possible). So, I've decided the best way to have both is to go to art school and climb and hike as much as possible in my spare time. Seems to be working so far!

All this means I'll be 27 when I get my bachelors! better late than never :D

I've been avidly climbing and hiking for four years now, when climbing I lean towards more traditional styles (long routes with no bolts) but enjoy all aspects of climbing. My experiences climbing and hiking, as well as my experiences in nature are things I want to include in my artwork, and I plan on working with this over the summer.

Check out my website for some of my artwork. www.homepage.mac.com/ricabergstrom

Well, stick with Sacco. He's a professional BSer and the most experienced on the site.

Neil runs a distant second but it's non native BS.

My undergraduate degree, which I completed in four consecutive years, was a BM. I don't know where that puts me.

In the outhouse? :eek: Don't forget the paperwork!!! :rolling:

Boreal Chickadee 05-24-2005 11:01 PM

That puts you with me, Dick. I took 21 or 22 hours each semester so I could get done faster. With two kids, the bills were more important than sleep. There were times though that I wished the dean would NOT sign the waiver for course overload. AS,BS,MS And I still ended up computer challenged.

KevynJJ 05-24-2005 11:44 PM

It took me 6 years and 196 credits to get my BS. Of course they screwed up and gave me a BA, which is completely BS!

I have a Juris Doctor, but I do not make house calls. :D

lumberzac 05-25-2005 08:38 AM

It took me 6 years to get my BA, but an Architecture degree is a 5-year program, so I guess that isn’t too bad. I lost a year by transferring from community college, but ended up saving myself at least $10,000.

About Me
 
Well, I am a 16 year old kid, maybe the youngest member on the forum, but I love the Adiirondacks. My grandparents bought a house in wells after vacationing in well for a few years. Since then, our family has been in love with the area. My grandfather actually started the Jolie Montaigne Property Owners Association in Wells. My family never hiked, until I started reading Barbara McMartin's hiking the adirondacks series. We haven't stopped hiking since. Usually it's me, my uncle and my mom that do all the hiking together.
I'm planning to graduate high school, go on to college, get a great job, so that I can take off and spend my time in Wells,NY!

Wells?

Sounds familiar... Redhawk... ever heard of it?

Just found this thread
 
So I figured I'd respond. My name is Karen, I'm 45, married, mother of three daughters and (I hesitate to admit it) a lawyer, although I neither ambulance-chase nor drive a BMW. Actually, I work for a federal judge in Buffalo. My first mountain was Mt. Mansfield in I think 1974. My first ADK high peak was Esther with my college boyfriend and some of his Plattsburgh buddies in 1980. In the early 80's, I climbed about 20 of the high peaks and my connection to the area and the wilderness experience was forged. Marriage (to someone else), law school and kids slowed my progress on the 46 over the years. But in the last few years, I've started hiking with my middle daughter (now 13 years old) and I plan on completing the 46 this summer (6 to go). I've enjoyed reading the posts on this forum, and I appreciate the advice I've been given. Living in WNY, I'm really far from the mountains, and this site keeps me connected. Thanks!

hikerdad 05-25-2005 11:34 PM

OK here goes...my name is Pat (i've posted here a bit and on VFTT and on Tim's board). I'm 46, married and a father of 4 great kids aged 15-20 and live in Apalachin, NY about 15 miles west of Binghamton, NY...my two boys and I finished our 46 in June of 2004. My youngest daughter is at 42 peaks (I didn't get my oldest daughter out in time and lost her to the Gap store in Placid). I've always liked the woods...grew up in a small town in NW PA up on Lake Erie and used to go to the Allegheny Nat'l Forest to camp, hike and hunt/fish a bit. I hiked the northern Presidentials solo while in college. Didn't do much hiking until the kids got older and started back up in about '95 with the boys in the Catskills where we did about 10 peaks or so. Always wanted to hit the ADKs (I remember finding the old 1950ish ADK 46er book in the library at Penn State back in 1978 while a student there and thinking that they sounded pretty cool....) and finally got there in about '95 or '96. First ADK hike was Wright and Algonquin and I was hooked. I love hiking with my kids and have enjoyed seeing them grow up while at it. I'd like to hit the Presidentials or Katahdin this summer (after finishing my daughters 46) and would like to try a real bushwack. Now that the kids are getting older (god I can't believe how old sometimes) I'll have to find other hiking partners so if anyone i slooking for middle aged (god that can't be me!) guy to hike with let me know.....
