You guys are going to the Gathering right? Would you be interested in summiting an easier peak like Esther? I think I am climbing Whiteface and Esther that day so I can be back in time to enjoy the party.
I cannot wait to hike Allen with you and Fran! We will make the long hike fun! I am glad that thread is giving you the inspiration to lose weight! It was not easy at first but now I am in a routine and it feels GREAT! Tell Fran I said hello. Did she like the pictures?
