I'll be offline for a few days as the family (pregnant wife, 22 month old son, two dogs, and me) head off to the mountains for a little camping. Some may call it brave. Some may call it foolish. Either way it should be interesting, and after all, it was the wife's idea. It's the first camping trip for the boy. I expect he'll enjoy it since one of his first sentences was "go trail now?" and he knows the difference between his Crocks and his "trail" shoes (Merrells that have most aggressive tread I could find in his size).
The picture is the last good camping picture. The real MountainRunner is crossing the stream carrying the dog food while my other dog, a 3-legged climber with a turbo for climbing hills (not so much going down them), watches with perhaps less eagerness for the mild crossing.
For the record, this trip has been on the calendar for a month.
