    I tend to run warm, so this heat and humidity is no fun. Why can't it be October all year long? ;) I guess it's a good time to be recovering from knee replacement surgery, as all I can do right now...

    I'm not on the committee, but it's my understanding that the list peaks will be reconsidered again when/if new USGS topo maps are produced. But I'm not holding my breath on when/if that might happen.

    Before my recent surgery, I'd been using an unloader brace for the last few years. It did help a lot, but I can't say I'll miss it.
