    I'm very excited. So often I have to cancel planned trips or put them off and this one is planned, supplied/equipped and the permits are arranged.

    It's likely to be pretty cold and wet, and I'll be bringing long sleeves and a hat so I'll forgo the sun-screen.

    There's going to be at least one 30' rappel so we'll be bringing some climbing gear and that may offer a good excuse for some climbing while I'm gone. I hope so. My current Harness hasn't even been broken in yet (or used at all).

    I was beginning to worry Rick left the thong behind.

    Never! I can show you. It's around here somewhere. I don't think it's packed away yet.

    Yes, likely to be pretty chilly, last time I was up that way was a few years ago in March, we were on a motorcycle, 40's in the daytime, hit snow when we got up around Zion. Don't fall in the lake.

    34lb of trail-mix any one?

    Guests can not see images in the messages. Please register in the forum.

    it'll go well with the 20lb of various hot cereal and the 30lb of cous cous.

    also; it looks like the field office we're headed for is in kanab utah, so we will be headed there instead of page.
