_to write darkness

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. _c.s. lewis

Don’t worry, I forgot too.

Posted by abramjanson on October 21, 2009

I know you forgot I had a blog… no worries though.  I forgot too.
Actually… I don’t think I really forgot… I just simply consciously decided I had nothing good to write… at least nothing worth reading… and therefore nothing worth writing for it wouldn’t be read.  (I’m in philosophy class right now… hence why i sound so philosophical… and by philosophical I mean everything sounds the same and is redundant but somehow possess more than 4 different meanings…)

Anyways… I’m going to attempt to get back on this horse.

I have a lot of thoughts… many of which I don’t write down and therefore I feel 1.) I either forget or 2.) I don’t fully engage them.

Both are true.

The summer ended well. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.

The semester has been full of school, soccer, and campus life… All of which have been great. Like anything… There are good and great days… and not so good.

Anyways… thats all for now.  Cheers to pursuit of writing down my thoughts.

First Swimmer.

Posted by abramjanson on June 17, 2009

Hello Friends.

It appears I am human… Haha… Just kidding… But seriously… I finally punched my ticket for the first swimmer of my guiding career (i’m not counting some crazy lady last year who jumped in… 😛 )

Had the all day trip… everything was going great. Good lines in the rapids… Good conversation in the boat… great lunch… and then came Siedel’s Suckhole.

I just straight up got worked.

And… Then she just went out the back.   I watched her go… slow motion… head over heels out the back of the boat… She got sucked down… shot under the boat… and came up 10 feet in front… meanwhile… we were still getting worked in the hole. 🙂 It was quite the good surf that is for darn sure.

The important part… I kept us from flipping. 🙂

And in my defense… Easily the rapid that serves up the most carnage on that entire section of river… It’s legit.

It happens to the best of us… I guess. Haha.  As always… It’s a humbling experience and you really get a renewed realization of the enormous power that the river possesses.  Check out a little video of some Siedel’s action below… to give you a little taste of my day… 🙂

Just got worked.

life is life.

Posted by abramjanson on June 16, 2009

Life is carrying on as usual here in the CO.  No complaints… still feel I’m too blessed to complain.

Here is a bulleted list of updates.

  • The Riv is running about 1600 cfs as I type.
  • Business is picking up for the long summer hall.
  • If you know of anyone or any group looking to do a trip with a bit of adventure this summer please direct them here. (We’d appreciate the business)
  • Still single.
  • I’ve been working my way through The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis as of lately.
  • I have a morning rock climb and an afternoon rafting trip tomorrow.
  • Went bouldering at midnight by headlamps last night and capped it off with a bon fire and IBC root beer.
  • I need to start running for soccer.
  • I love the people here.
  • I need to go to bed.
  • I watched every game of the Stanley Cup Finals in the Lariat.
  • The Tigers are still performing well and continue to make me happy.

Thats about it.

So… I went through a little change a couple days ago… 🙂


From bearded greatness… to masculine mustache.
