What's New at ROCK'n & JAM'n?

Young at Heart... 

So, what does the expression "young at heart" mean to you?


As climbers, we all know that this sport puts us at risk for climbing
related injuries. We subject our bodies to all sorts of strange and unusual contortions, pushing our joints and tendons to the limits. As we get older(and I like to think wiser too), we are forced to compromise on certain aspects of our adventurous lifestyle. But as long as we have the will, the drive, (and the brains to not push it too far), we can always find a way to enjoy our passions in life.

So, when I go to a concert and a young girl turns around and asks me 'how old are you?" And after I tell her she high-fives me and responds "my mom doesn't even KNOW who AWOLNATION is...", I have reason to smile!


Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." - Mark Twain


May you continue to enjoy all your favorite passions for a lifetime!
