I wrote all that about being so good at doing things alone and then I bailed on myself today. I had planned to go biking again at Chutes but didn't for various reasons... or excuses... mainly a mix between the cold (and my fear of getting sick before my trip) and the pain in my right leg that has yet to even subside, let alone go away. I am really anxious to go on the snowshoeing trip this weekend. It's definitely something different... looks like we may go to Yosemite, but we aren't quite sure yet. I have only been to Yosemite once, back in '95 (no, not '97 this time, Josh) and it was great... though I don't think I really appreciated it back then at the wee age of 17. I have some pics and very precious few memories (9 years is like a few millenia as far as my feeble brain is concerned) but I remember mostly just enjoying being somewhere different and being with my friends. This time, I will likely be with only one friend, Josh, and though I will enjoy the feeling of being away from the usual (home, work, work...) I think I will mostly enjoy being there. It'll be like White Mountain last summer... immense contentment. I also hope to do some great photography... though that is somehow secondary to the trip itself. Let's see how quick those Canon batteries die in the cold...
