ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER

Been absent for quite awhile.  Are you feeling fonder?  He he he!

I’ve had calls from folks asking if all is well.  Yes, all is well.  Life is busy, and the privilege of blogging has taken the back burner.  Thank you for your concern!

Posting photos of Yosemite and Tahoe areas because . . . well because every good blog post needs photos, I’m not at my computer with my own photos, these photos were all part of the “public domain” so I could use them without liability.  And. . . .

These places are meaningful to me and part of a plan for the future.

I have a dream of hiking from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe, and now have plans to make that happen the summer of 2015.  Seems like a long way away, but a 180 mile backpacking trip like that takes some planning.  And I won’t be going alone.  My so will join me.

Pretty cool dream, huh!  We’re excited about it, and using the next few summers to prepare.  Andy will join us for some parts if he can, and we may have other company along the way.
