You have an artist's sensitivity to color.

I will paddle eternal, Kevlar and carbon.

You are welcome, but I'm just telling the truth. I work with professional photographers and you see pictural possibility like they do!

I will paddle eternal, Kevlar and carbon.

Surley can not aurge with Miss Molly, really great pictures. I liked your report very much, I got a kick out of the part about "the sit down bones" well put. Whats the deal your husband did'nt give up his therma rest? you had to drain the tent pad? Your attitude says TRUE LOVE. Hope to hear more from you in the future> FRED

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fourtune to remember the ones do, and the eyesight to tell the differance.

Glad you guys enjoyed. It was a beauty of a trip and a pleasure to share! I just wish I could sneak in one more yet this year...but don't we always? I'm already on to looking at maps and planning for next year's trips; its what will keep me going through the winter.

I truly enjoyed your report and photos. I stayed at that same site on Crooked and I remember looking at that tent pad and being skeptical about how it would handle a heavy rain. Luckily I didn't have to find out because my hammock was well off the ground and plus it didn't rain while I was there. Well now I know. Thanks for sharing

Thanks, enjoyed your report and photos. I've been on parts of that, but not others.
