No Grinch here.
This year has been good. I got on several new (to me) whitewater runs:
and back on an old friend, with a new teacher- the Middle Ocoee with Jeff West.
AND the new (to me) flat water runs:
Cahaba Grants mill to Overton
Cahaba Helena to Alabama Small Boats
Buffalo River in Arkansas
I worked hard on my roll and will continue to do so.
On the vertical side of things, I participted in another Bridge Day,
Did Valhalla and Moses' Tomb for the first time,
and ascended Whitesides Mtn. for the first time too.
I finally bought a mandolin and I can play it pretty damn well.
A couple of 5k's, a new cat Tessa that I have nicknamed Lord Voldermort, and a lot more gray hair.
AND if I manage two more weeks I can also mark off a year Without A Major Accident, and a year without A Trip To The Hospital.
