We practiced packing the boat yesterday. Thanks to Norm Miller, I’ll be running a pretty tight ship. At least it looks pretty trim.

we are heading to Sawtelle Peak for the ski in to the Missouri River’s ultimate source, Brower’s Spring. We will be skiing, and not paddling. The spring is just below the Continental Divide.

Our visit with Norm and his girlfriend, Kris Walker, has been heartwarming and incredibly fun. We will take away some very memorable moments lasting a lifetime!

Please be patient with me as I transition my computer tool from a laptop with Vista Business to an iPad. It is my first Mac experience aside from an iPhone I’ve only owned for two months. I hope to be able to keep you better updated.

Off we go!

    Janet….just a heads up. We are still in the year 2013. Your post says 2014. Wishful thinking!

    Good luck on your expedition! It has been a joy watching the development of all of this.

    • That is hilarious. Wonder how long it said 2014? I’ve changed it now and so happy you brought that to my attention.
      Thanks, Mary Kay. Tomorrow I put my boat in the water! Warm regards, Janet
