Put The "Done" Stamp On That


John and I had an amazing and arduous backpacking adventure around Mt Rainier. We experienced beautiful scenery, mosquitoes, gale force winds, hot days, freezing nights, rain, sleet, steep ascents/descents, fording a freezing white water river, and ninety-three miles of walking with 40+ pounds on our backs. We had originally planned to finish in eleven days but bad weather forced us to speed up and cut it to nine.

9 days and all we get is 2 measly photos and a paragraph?! wha?

You need to put out hank.

that said, from the brief description, it sounds like a great adventure.

I'm writing a short story about our trials and challenges. I'm traveling to D.C. this week so I should have plenty of time to work on it. Once my brother clears it, I'll find a way to make it available to everyone who cares to read about it.
