Wandern in Tirol auch das Tal :D

Wanderung in das Tal “G’sperr”

 bergwanderung in tirol und bergtouren

Austria, Tyrol, Reutte January 2013

Wanderung in das Tal “G’sperr”

Ein klarer, eiskalter Morgen. Die Sonne ist bereits über den schroffen Berggipfeln ausgegangen und die frische Morgenluft lädt zum Wandern ein. Letzte Nacht hatte es geschneit und der weiche Pulverschnee bedeckte das ganze Tal.

Nicht weit vom Ortszentrum Reutte, am Fuße des Berges „Dürrenberg“, schlängelt sich ein schmales Tal über 2km in den Fels. Die Einheimischen nennen dieses Tal zu Recht den „Grand Canyon“. Im Winter führt der Fluss „Zwieselbach“ meistens nur wenig Wasser und so kann man mit passendem Schuhwerk und Eispickel den Weg in dieses wunderschöne Tal wagen.

Das Schoen tal!
Mit wasserdichten Schuhen, Rucksack und Eispickel waren wir gegen 10.00 Uhr am Ausgangspunkt. Es wurde schnell klar, dass diese Wanderung trotz guten Materials nicht einfach werden würde. Der Fluss führte trotz des Winters noch ziemlich viel Wasser und um überhaupt das Tal betreten zu können mussten wir schon 2 Mal den Fluss überqueren. Im Zickzack Kurs ging es zuerst über verschneite Felsen und Eisplatten, die den Fluss säumten. Inzwischen war es wärmer geworden, aber die Sonne würde es erst in einigen Wochen schaffen den Boden des Tales zu berühren. So bahnten wir uns unseren Weg immer weiter in dieses wunderschöne Tal hinein und hinter jeder Flussbiegung wurde die Landschaft rauer. Das kristallklare Wasser hatte 4 Meter hohe Wasserfälle gefrieren lassen. An diesen Stellen kamen unsere Eispickel zum Einsatz.

Ohne die Eispickel und die Schuhe mit einer besonders harten Sole, hätten wir keine Chance auf dem gefrorenen Boden Halt zu finden. Das praktische an diesen Eispickeln ist, dass sie nicht nur wenige Millimeter in das Eis geschlagen werden müssen, um einen Menschen zu tragen. Gefährlich wird es erst dann, wenn das Eis ausbricht. Bei Temperaturen unter dem Gefrierpunkt ist es deshalb sehr wichtig, immer Wechselkleidung im Rucksack zu haben. Das gefährlichste ist die Kälte.

Im Sommer gehen wir oft zum Klettern in der „G’sperr“. Ein Kletterparadies mit Routen unterschiedlichen Schwierigkeitsstufen.
Ein Muss für alle Kletterbegeisterten!!

Access exercise Bars are pretty tasty. Keep me going too!

A new thing I've been enjoying:  Courtesy of the manufacturer....  Call my buddy Hamed if you want to order some.  He's a distributor for them. 

Access® Exercise Bars – Pantry 2-pack—Save $2.00
  • Save $2 compared to buying the products individually
  • Access stored body fat faster
  • Increase endurance with less fatigue and soreness
What Makes It Different?
Access® turns fat into fuel. Access® includes a proprietary fat conversion formula combined with clinically proven* CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) to help you access your stored fat, achieve greater endurance, reduce body fat†, increase muscle tone†, and keep fat off†.
Why Is That Important?
Access® technology allows you to jump-start and maximize your workout and weight loss potential using a unique technology combination only found in Access®.
The original Access® technology allows your body to:
  • Access stored body fat faster to fuel your workout
  • Naturally block the energy-sapping effects of adenosine
  • Increase endurance with less fatigue and soreness
With the addition of clinically proven and patented CLA, Access® technology also delivers increased fat-loss and body toning benefits*. This proven technology from CLA can help you:
  • Reduce body fat by up to 10%*†
  • Improve muscle tone and build lean muscle†
  • Keep fat off and prevent weight regain†
For optimal results, consume one serving of Access® 15 minutes before exercising.
It Works Because…
During exercise the body produces adenosine, which slows fat burning and promotes fatigue, soreness, and reduced muscle contraction. The original Access® technology developed by Larry Wang, Ph.D., a world-renowned authority on fat metabolism, helps block adenosine so you can more easily convert fat into fuel and increase endurance with less fatigue and soreness associated with exercise.
Access® also delivers impressive fat-loss and body toning benefits by leveraging the power of CLA. Access® contains the purest form of CLA available. Naturally sourced from safflower, this highly purified CLA is patented and clinically proven.
Reduced body fat, improved muscle tone and weight regain prevention is possible because of the way CLA alters the body's interaction with fat. By helping the body burn fat more efficiently CLA helps increase fat metabolism, limit fat deposits, reduce the size of fat cells and build lean muscle. Because muscle helps burn fat, the longer you use Access®, the more fat loss and body toning benefits you will see.
This remarkable technology is backed by extensive scientific research, including 18 independent clinical studies and more than 75 published articles. The CLA found in Access® has over 40 patents or pending patents across the globe.
An impressive research finding is the fact that the CLA in Access® works on people of all shapes and activity levels, whether they are normal weight, overweight or obese.
Let Access® turn your fat into fuel to fuel your personal weight-loss and fitness victories.
*In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, CLA users showed a significant reduction in weight, BMI, and body fat mass versus placebo. CLA users also significantly increased lean body mass. Gaullier, et al., CLA Reduces Body Fat Mass and Is Well Tolerated, The Journal of Nutrition, 2005.
†When 3 grams of pure CLA are consumed daily for several weeks. Access® contains 1.5 grams of pure CLA per serving.

Life lessons learned and Hard Times

There are times in life that test our metal.
First stop your negative self talk, that defeats you before you start.  Best investment in life is investing in your inner person!  Knowledge + Wisdom is more valuable than gold!

     When I really need a mustard seed of faith (an ounce of faith) from people in my immediate circle of family/ friends, they let me down.  I have to have faith in myself.  I guess that is why self made men are called "Self made man"  If by some miracle, you have a close group to support you in your endeavors that's amazing! 

There's always something that causes change in our life.   Are you at that point in life?  I was 2 weeks ago and said YES to an email, and clicked on the link.  Now I'm on the road to Success. Are you ready to get to work and live the life you want not the one life hands you?  Get to work and earn that life yourself.  In the end no one will give you a life changing business you work for what you get in this life.   Alexander the great had to earn his kingdom.   

I am learning to be a person of action through life's hard knocks.  Wish I'd learnt sooner!  Today I am working to earn my kingdom and help others succeed in the process.
If you need someone to talk to email or phone me.  Ive seen the wors of worst of life which makes me help others. 

Are you an action person? Say Yes today and do something about it! 

Latest lesson:  True character shows in your actions toward your enemy in his/her time of need.  Do you show real love to rise above?   Become a person of good action today.

Last minute purchase warmed to my core

Come one come all to cheap warmth!

Hi someone asked about great long underwear or base layers. I found a neat long underwear base layer at REI's clearance section. They were an awesome chance encounter! Mine had just split seams from too many years of use. These were only about $20 to boot.

REI Lightweight Polartec Power Dry Long Underwear Bottoms - Men's by REI

The REI Lightweight Polartec® Power Dry® long underwear bottoms are an excellent performance insulation layer for aerobic activities in cold weather.

So these guys got a test in "trial by fire".  I got purchased them and next week we were on the trail to the Polar Star inn.  It's a cabin in the 10th mountain Division's hut system near Vail , cooper, Breckenridge, Eagle etc Colorado.  People traverse back to these remote huts and yurts and cabins that are miles away from civilization.   Guiding this group back there was a welcome break from city life :) 
We were exposed to  50 degree warm days and  -20 cold extremes on top of New York mountain.   They were flexible enough in movement and warmth to handle all I needed.  I could've saved space and left my heavy Polartec fleece pants at home!  Work duty ranged from carrying the group's gear around to having to race out in 4 minute miles to get a sick client back to a hospital.  (Beware of Altitude sickness and drink plenty of water/Gatorade before scaling mountains!)

The underwear base layer did a marvelous job.  I plan on keep using in in trips and around the house since my roommates like the thermostat at 60 degrees!
