Thanks for sharing a really good summary of your trip. We always make a lessons learned list after each trip (or try to). It helps.

I'm glad something good came out of it! Big Zig, I enjoyed your grandson's perspective as well!

Nice little trip report Andrea. Thanks.

The best part of this journey here is further knowing yourself - Alan Kay

What is Greg making in that supper pic?


I love those silly moments (singing Old MacDonald).

Ha Ha! Those we were the "Five Star" Fajitas, which the guys wanted eaten fast 'cause they were taking up a lot of space. I think it was worth it to have a little fresh food along tho.

Years later you will be talking about this trip and the weather. My son still talks about our first trip in and the terrible storm that we got caught in.

Thanks for the report. Sounds like all of you can really enjoy the experience of imperfect weather. An excellent trait!
