Capturing for all time

Posted by joeabbott on September 13, 2010

Each year a few of my buddies and I get out for an annual hiking trip. I look forward to the outing all year and, while recent years have been a bit soggy, the long weekends we spend time together remain highlights of the year.

I plan on writing more about the hikes but we’ve been doing this for sixteen years and I started to forget the details of the hikes. While trying to remember the details from all the trips, I only got about half the data! During this past weekend we had another hike so, with their help, Ron, Tim, Dan, and I were able to reconstruct the many years we’ve been getting out.

Here are the trips we’ve taken, who arranged it, and who attended:image
