    Sorry for the injury. Looking forward to the trip report.

    Hoping Fronkey and Tala are beating winter....

    The weather up here is pretty nasty right now. Not that cold, but very strong winds. Should make for an interesting time for Fronkey. Hopefully he gets the tarp pitched nice and tight tonight.

    Glad to hear that you're okay Black Wolf (well, as okay as anyone can be with a pulled muscle). Heal up soon!

    The windchills up here last night and tonight: -25F to -45F. Actual temps in the low single digits and just below zero with 20mph winds for tonight. Last night we had sustained winds in the 40mph range.

    This is dangerous weather to be out in. I hope Fronkey is hunkered down somewhere and protecting himself and Tala.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    Here's hoping for a sunny, warm, windless day for the poor fellow & his pup!

    Bummer, I know how you were looking forward to this, so I also know you have disappointment. I hope the injury gets well quickly, see you again in the Ocala.

    Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. ... To live only for some future goal is shallow. Itís the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. Here's where things grow.
