As time goes by...

It has been a while since I last posted anything on here, yet a lot has happened.  As time has gone I have wanted to update this page, but didn´t quite know where to start.  Here are some of the key points in text, and the rest in pictures:
  • Tove and I got married on the 9th of July 2014
  • I started competing in the UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup
  • Tove got a job as a 1st grade teacher
  • We went to Utah to see me father get remarried.  He married my Bestman`s mother, and it was AWESOME!
  • I quit my job at the climbing gym, looking to get rid of unnecessary negativity in my life
  • I volunteered during the IFSC Sport Climbing World Cup in Stavanger, and helped with the Deep Water Soloing competition put on by Bratte Rogalands Venner
  • We got an adorable Bernese Mountain Dog puppy named Gadi (who has possibly the world´s sharpest teeth!)
  • I have climbed/trained a lot! I am planning on competing in 4 of the 6 World Cup competitions this year.  They are:
    • Bozeman, USA 10-12 December 2015
    • Saas-Fee, Switzerland 22-23 January 2016
    • Rabenstein, Italy 29-31 January 2016
    • Busteni, Romania 12-14 February 2016
