The climbfish have now evolved to cover my life in the US - including very exiting life in downtown Baltimore (aka the wire) and ocean research expeditions with NOAA. I don't promise frequent updates but I will try and cover the most and least exiting times here. Enjoy!

Big in America

The family is expanding!
Me and Anna are settling in fine for yet another year in the States. We got ourself a car, a fine car I would like to say (although the mechanics might think differently), and even more importantly - we got a canoe! The two go hand in hand and are a secret strategy (huusshhh...) of mine to be able to kidnap Anna when she get to much work to do in school. So now we have a fine house, a fine car(!), and a very fine canoe. And we got an extra room for visitors, so friends and family are strongly encourage to come for a visit. And as you can see from the rest of the pictures there is plenty to do here in the rat city!
Bigger is better (?)
Local specialty (hopefully not in the diner)
Local Specialty nr 2, more tasty but with a strong pinch
A visit to the Chesapeake Bay turned crabby.
It was pretty easy catching them blue crabs but did not feel all
that relaxed walking around in the murky crab infested estuary
Another hungry fellow, American Museum of National History, NY 
Me and Anna exploring Hudson Valley with Alex and Karen
during a weekend getaway to downtown Manhattan
Alex, Karen and Anna enjoying the leaves turning just
 a short train ride from New York
Pub crawl turned into a great house party on Annas Birthday
(Lesson learned: we had way to much beer in the fridge for people to leave...) 
Party in the fridge
Our "garden". Finally got the hammock up just in time for winter
Baltimore is a little behind when it comes to infrastructure...
(The photo is unfortunately taken from our hammock...)
Yesterdays Virgin Voyage! 12 mile float on the Potomac river from Harpers Ferry.
She stood the test and neither me nor Trevor got particularly(...) wet, rapids and all  

I am sitting in the airport in San Juan, PR, waiting to board my flight to St.Thomas, Caribbean, to work for 10 days together with my colleague Bryan. We will do some ground validation work on the shallow costal reefs surrounding the Island. Should have some nice pics for you next time I write.
