Just a quick note to update everyone ... I have also started a trailjournals.com weblog to document to rigors of winter hiking / camping, this is mostly for the sake of the hikers in the hiking community, but you are all welcome to read it, also read others and become acquainted with trails local to you, etc., and just be advised of a duplicate.
Also, their will be a going away party at the house on Thursday night at 7:00pm, as a final toasting to the insanity. All those who can make it, your presence will be appreciated. All those who wish to stay at home reading the dictionary, ... we'll miss ya! For folks that just wanted to come but couldn't because they're either in OK, OR, or CO, it's alright, I know that you're here in 'spiritus'
