Responses this weekend will be a bit delayed, as I have Gone Hiking.
Well, in fairness it is more "Gone Training Hiking". My brother in law (he of The Grand Canyon adventure last year) and I are planning on an 8 day hike this August. Beyond just the usual "train more", he and I are making a series of three day training hikes leading up to August (besides I need to burn some PTO or lose it).
With any luck, we will be completely excluded from cell phone coverage (so work cannot find me - or more appropriately, so that I will not be tempted to check my e-mail). I am hopeful that where we are going will give us some beautiful pictures and allow me to refocus a little bit.
