Medicine Man and Chris McNamara hanging at Outdoor Gear Labs in South Lake Tahoe!:)
Chris is the real deal when it comes to my favorite quote…drum roll please 🙂 ..”I do my best to walk on the edge of life and NOT take up space in the Universe.” Chris McNamara walks that walk BIG TIME. Lucky me I got meet him riding down Highway 50 on his electric skateboard a few moons back and the rest is history. Check out his bio and his web site for his companies. This nearly 71 year old Medicine Man hopes to be on the same page as Chris McNamara when he grows up LOL 🙂

About the Author
Chris is the founder of OutdoorGearLab and serves as Editor-in-Chief. Climbing Magazine once computed that three percent of Chris McNamara’s life on earth has been spent on the face of El Capitan—an accomplishment that has left friends and family pondering Chris’ sanity. He’s climbed El Capitan over 70 times and holds nine big wall speed climbing records. In 1998 Chris did the first Girdle Traverse of El Capitan, an epic 75-pitch route that begs the question, “Why?” Outside Magazine has called Chris one of “the world’s finest aid climbers.” He’s the winner of the 1999 Bates Award from the American Alpine Club and founder of the American Safe Climbing Association, a nonprofit group that has replaced over 14,000 dangerous anchor bolts. Chris is also the founder and lead author of the rock climbing guidebooks publisher, SuperTopo. He is a graduate of UC Berkeley. You can follow him on Facebook, Twitter or ChrisMcNamara.com. He also has two Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals here and here.

You would be hard-pressed to find a doctor that sings professionally or a vocalist that sings about health and animal rescue – unless you have been following the incomparable career of Dr. Bera Dordoni. Affectionately known as the “singing doctor” by clients and audiences nationwide, Dr. Bera sings about health for the whole person – body, mind and soul – and our joyous bond with our animal companions. Truly multifaceted, Dr. Bera is a professional singer, naturopathic doctor, health novelist, sought-after lyricist, master gardener and passionate animal advocate. Her CDs merge all that personal and musical versatility into tunes that range from ballads to jazz to gospel to Broadway to blues – a veritable feast of vitality and passion that offers something for everyone to enjoy. In May 2003, she was voted “Bad Girl Of the Month” by Bad Girls Press, a website celebrating “intelligent, creative, and wise women.”In October 2004, her musical peers honored and recognized her latest inspirational CD, Voice for a Choice! Here you can listen to her latest blues song, Learn to Unlearn, which asks us, as humans, to consider unlearning some of the wrong information we’ve been taught in the treatment of our animals, and start respecting the nature of the animal.
