Thank you Tom. I'm looking forward to it as well. I've been wanting to go back and draw that rock with the ship's prow since I saw it with you 2 years ago.

Yeah Nick, I have had more bear encounters in Los Padres than I have had in the Sierra. I know you know the area we were in; I love it there during the "winter" closures...MTB in on the ...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
