Just got back home a few hours ago. I am still reeling from the long
drive and all the hikin' and hangin'! Really enjoyed hiking with
Risk and also the short day hike with Cody on Saturday. That young
in is a mountain goat! I was puffing and wheezing and he wasn't even

We got up today to find Risk gone as he had to get back early. The
rest of us stood around a small campfire to warm up and kill off a

so and headed back to Mobile.
I sure had a good time and am looking forward to the next event.
- Thanks Mark! I will be taking a look at this. Sounds like a great
way to spend a few days in the trees!
Looking forward to getting together soon.
