Visit to Grandpa

Taking a quick trip to Oregon to see Grandpa. He also has Parkinsons Disease, though he has lived a very long and fulfilling life.. It is undeniable that I harbor concern about the heredity of the disease, though research is unclear about the correlation. Regardless of whether it is genetic or environmental, or both, I remain steadfast in my lifelong belief in the importance of physical activity. So to climb mountains, and to climb the highest mountains, represents a frontal assault on all maladies, including Parkinsons. I hope to climb mountains until the day I climb into my bed, and die in my sleep, after such activity. #climbaboveparkinsons #7summits2018
