In order to make our activation legal we hiked over to the Crags trail and wouldn't you know it we ran into one of my co-workers making his final ascent. He accomplished his hike in about 5 hours and showed no signs of wear or tear. Great job Glenn.

Since I am going backwards, on the 2nd of Jul I picked up a new pack. My old pack, a Golite Jam 35, had seen better days. It was not only getting ripped up but the foam backing is out of shape. While I really liked the Jam 35, Golite went out of business. Now, My Trail Company is making those packs but I opted to go back to a Gregory pack similar to my old Z Pack. Why is it when you go into REI looking for one 12 dollar item you walk out 200 dollars in the hole!
Here is a stock photo of the Zulu 30.
Before that Lynn and I were on vacation in NC. We plan to move to NC in the future and are just thinking about our exit strategy from Colorado.
Here are some pictures of our vacation.

We are planning on hiking a few 14ers this summer. Should be a challenge and fun.
