Hi all

I will be off-air for a couple of months - July, August and part of September. Sue and I will be in Europe walking the Via Alpina Purple Route, hopefully end-to-end if we can go fast enough. So if anyone notices my absence ...

1942 Via Alpina, before Triglav, R&S
In front of Triglav, Slovenia, 2011

Cheers

Uh oh, who's going to keep the rabble under control in your absence? ;=)

Bon voyage! And remember to take pictures. :)

Have a grand journey, Roger. Maybe Maia can help fill in during your absence.

I'm going to start posting unsubstantiated crackpot scientific theories about everything as soon as you leave. When you get back, it'll take you MONTHS to sort it all out! Muhahahahahah!

Seriously, however, have a nice trip!

While you're gone, Roger, I'll do everything in my power to set things back on track here at BPL, namely steer the rabble back to your beloved pup tents and away from this blasphemy of "tunnel tents"! ;-^)

Have a safe and wonderful journey, Roger. I wish our summer journeys would pass in the vicinity of each other... it would be great to encounter you on the trail, but alas I'll be way west in the Pyrenees.

This looks like a very excellent walk. Happy trails! (And I for one second the need for a follow-up trip report.)
