I’m Not Cold

I've heard various complaints about the weather this summer. Yo know like, when is it going to start. I mean, sure, I don't think we've turned on the A/C once this year. And sure, it's raining on me as I type this. But my kids, they aren't complaining. We just busted out the bigger pool and started filling it up with cold water, but they insisted on getting in now. When asked if they're cold, the answer is, "I'm not cold."

Backpacking Planning

I’ve been looking forward to going backpacking for a couple months now. Especially whenever I look at some of Angie’s backpacking photos from previous trips we’ve had to the Elkhorn Mountains. They are located in the Blue Mountains near where I grew up in northeastern Oregon.

Angie and I are planning for a two or three night trip sometime in August to the Elkhorns again. Anyone interested in coming along?
