Interview with the hero from Book of Days by James L. Rubart:

1.Cameron, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

People love asking me about hanging from small outcroppings 300 feet in the air on the edge of cliffs. It’s a rush to do, and to talk about. But the reality—if done right—is rock climbing is a very safe sport.

2.What do you do for fun?

What, you don’t think rock climbing sounds like fun? (Laughs) Even though shooting and editing videos provides my income, it’s still fun for me in almost every moment. My dream is to write and direct a feature length film.

3.What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Laundry. Before my wife passed away she did it most of the time for both of us. Now that she’s gone the piles seem to grow while I sleep. I suppose doing the laundry would help in reducing the size of the pile.

4.What are you afraid of most in life?

Slowly losing my mind at a young age like my father did.

5.What do you want out of life?

To find the reason why I lost my Dad and lost my wife, both so young. To stop losing memories of Jessie (my late wife) and to find this book my dad said I had to find at all costs.

6.What is the most important thing to you?

The memory of my dad and of Jessie.

7.Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?

I’m going to sound obsessive here, but I love reading books on rock climbing. Also, I love to read Outside Magazine about being in the outdoors and the adventures others have gone on.

8.If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

That I would be able to let go of Jessie and open myself to the idea that there is someone else out there I could give my heart to.

9.Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

No pet, but I’m thinking it’s finally about time to bring back some wonderful boyhood memories and get a puppy Golden Retriever. I think I’ll name him Max.

10.If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

Without question I’d go back to the day of Jessie’s accident and keep it from happening.
