What is the dumbest/craziest thing you have ever done?

One time I went sledding in Sweden down a small mountain on what appeared to be a round trash can lid (think Chevy Chase in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation)! I ended up crashing backwards (no kidding) into the bumper of a minivan going mock speed. I wound up in a Swedish hospital with busted ribs. However, I did get a bologna sandwich and a Sonogram out of the deal.

What  is the dumbest/craziest thing you have ever done?

​I was rock climbing at an outdoor climbing spot in Dripping Springs with some friends, and I decided I wanted to lead climb for the first time. Lead climbing is different than normal climbing in that you clip into the wall as you go rather than having a rope attached to the top with a belayer catching you. As I got all strapped in and my belayer was ready I began to climb. I got to the first clip made sure he was ready and not so confidently said “okay,” so I clipped in and began climbing to the next clip, and the same thing happened. After I began to go for the third clip (about 30 feet off the ground) I look down and see there was a different friend belaying me, which is very odd and something that should never happen or be able to happen mid-climb, but I figured they knew what they were doing and kept climbing. Two clips later I finally finished the climb and my new belayer lowered me back to the ground. I soon found out the reason my original belayer sounded so unsure as I was climbing was because he had clipped into the wrong part of the rope leaving me to climb without anyone able to catch me, and so the new belayer jumped in as fast as he could without telling me so that I wouldn’t freak out while stranded 30 feet in the air. I survived without a scratch and now I guess I can confidently climb with anyone belaying me because there’s no way they can do worse, right?...

What do you love most about Canyon Creek?

​I love how much the youth group influenced my walk with Christ when I was a student growing up here, and I love the friendships that I made through them that have become some of my most cherished relationships.
