To the crusty, cantankerous, curmudgeonly, desert rat, thanks again for putting this together. I had a great time. It is always nice to hike with new people and truly enjoy their company. We had quite a diverse group and we all are united under a common interest.
Andy thanks for putting together the report, I will post some pics as soon as I can find some misplaced camera cords, lost in the move to the new house. I also loved your gear, pretty cool.
Jim, didn't talk to you a whole lot. I like that though, as I am not much of a talker myself. We will have to get together for some local weekend hikes, being we are in the same boat ( little kids ) .
Jace, you are one cool kid. Had no idea you were still in highschool, you carry yourself well. I look forward to following your thru hike. Enjoy yourself and don't be in a hurry to grow up. It will be there waiting for you.
Nick, keep me in the loop for any Memorial Day trips.
