    In this moment my greatest fear is going yet another day without sharing my canyoneering website. My second greatest fear is sharing my canyoneering website.

    https://canyoncompanion.com

    I built it because I wanted to build my own website. I made it about canyoneering because I love canyoneering.
    It's got a blog, glossary, pronunciation guide, abbreviations, and a few canyoneering articles may or may not have something new for you. If I've been canyoneering with you, I likely have pictures of you you haven't yet seen.
    Take a look, let me know what you like, what you learn, and what I got wrong.

    I have spent the last hour enjoying your new website. I love all the photos and trip reports. Thanks for sharing. I hope to see you in a canyon soon.

    Jared, I love, very much love, your sense of humor.

    An example from "About" on your site:
    "Medium quality canyoneer and web developer. Folds his clothes before putting them in his dry bag and has never peed in his wetsuit."

    Thank you Jenny and Evan.

    Just trying to accurately manage expectations. How does that saying go? Under promise and under deliver?

    I just read through your website. Love it and good job, friend! The Canyon Rating System that is interactive is such a cool idea!

    Can't wait to see more trip reports and do some fun canyons with you this year.

    P.s. I fold my clothes in my dry bag too. When I first bought my own canyon wetsuit - I MAY have peed in it! .

    Based on the reviews I submit that your "second greatest fear" is totally unfounded.

    Very nice canyoneering website! Clearly evident that you spent a fair amount of late night "leisure time" pulling it all together.

    (Although I do miss the dog avatar I think was yours... may be wrong.)

    Wow! That is some great stuff!

    Already added "Ape Index" to my canyon vocabulary. Never heard that one before.

    And a HUGE thank you for the correct pronunciation(s) of Escalante.
