Our version of the Whitehouse is plenty white, but it’s not a house. Instead, it’s this big hunk of rock you climb and ski. I got up there the other day with Penn Newhard of Backbone Media. Always good to get out with Penn and talk about family life, along with trying to scam airline tickets to his latest European luxury press junket espresso fest. He’s used being hit up like that, and somehow always turns the focus back to climbing and making turns. Oh well, espresso is over rated!
