    and flights are really cheap right now (almost gas money)
    But, I guess it is the hassel of flying...security, packs checked, rental cars to trail head, blah, blah, blah

    I WANT TO CAMP IN SNOW AGAIN!
    I guess that is a Yes vote for me.

    I like to camp / hike in all weather, but cool to cold is best for me.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    I have had WAY more than enough of this Georgia summer! Autumn is a long time coming.... can't wait!

    This morning I heard a flock of geese honking overhead. It filled me with hope of cooler weather coming soon!

    I don't want to shovel snow, but I am sick of sweating like a pig, too.

    I checked and I can get a flight 1 week out from NOLA to Portland, Maine (which is only an hour or so drive to cool places up there). If only I didn't have a wedding to go to next weekend.
