I left the woods for a day to recover, and that gives me the opportunity to update you on the Backpacking Project. I’ll give a detailed report when I return from vacation in two weeks, but I completed a short overnight with my friend Ian and Baxter the faithful hound. I made mistakes, many mistakes,and the trip didn’t go as planned, but all three of us had a good time, and I am now a backpacker.

Next backpacking trip is next week, and that will end my vacation. Back into the woods, and back to a quiet blog.
