Ni Hao! Jambo! Buenos Dias! Ciao! Konnichiwa! Guten Tag!

Welcome to EbertWorld

This website is the portal to all things Ebert. Of course for the most part I'm talking about the California Eberts. More specifically the Rancho Cucamonga Eberts. This site has been around since at least 1995 in one form or another. It's gone through numerous overhauls. I have at various times completely ignored this site and alternately completely obsessed over it to the dismay of my family. Lately I've been in Obsess mode (11/2008). Primarily because of the birth of my second child, Madison Marie. I think I did something similar when my son, Samuel, was born. Whatev... I'm not sure I really have goals for this site any more other than it is my personal piece of the internet. Here you will find thousands of pictures of me and my family. A lot of my writing will be found here and a lot of information on my various hobbies. If you have comments, complaints, or just would like to say hi, Please do. Ray

Backpacking/Mountaineering: I'm kinda big into the outdoors. I've summited Mt. Silliman, Half Dome, Mt. Whitney, Mt. Rainier, and attempted Cotopaxi and Cayambe in Ecuador. I've also day hiked many of the mountains in Southern California I've also backpacked all over the Sierras, Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. Check out the backpacking section for way more information than you probably want and hundreds of pictures.

Okay, that's about all the narcissism I can handle for today... ;) Ray
