Jake and his dudes (and dudette) made it to the summit of Mount Hood. I’ve been hosting them here at my abode, and visiting upon them massive amounts of homebrew. All is appreciated. Tomorrow they set forth for the summit of Rainier.

Meanwhile, ever since getting back to Hood River I’ve been working way too late at the shop. Tonight I patched a small hole in my kite that’s had me grounded for a spell, so tomorrow it’s time to hit the water again with so much vigor.
