      Great pics and report Matt. I'm kinda relieved I didn't make it after hearing of all the hiking you guys did. Having health issues, and I might not have made it off the Mtn.

      That and the carnage on rigs more built then mine. It might have not made it down either! LOL

      The hiking was purely optional. The hike up Three Sisters peak was a brutal hike. My 72 year old dad did the hike to First Dinkey, South, and Suede. He is good shape for his age for sure. You have a year to plan for the week long trip in the plans for next year. It will have some optional hikes as well but you can always relax and hang out at the lakes. We had a few hammocks setup that called a few peoples names thru the week.

      Besides what happened on drive home, I had a great time. So did TJ Mike and Ken. It was just a all-around good trip. Challenging trails, beautiful scenery, great people, great fishing and great campfire sitarounds. Spent some long overdue time with old friends and made some new friends. I will post up some pictures soon.

      Thanks to Matt for organizing this run. When we picked up your dad I have to admit, I got a little emotional thinking about how much my dad would have loved to have gone on this run.

      It would have been great having your dad with us. I always enjoyed listening to his stories around the campfire. I can't wait to see more pictures from the trip.

      Dusy opened today. It closes November 1. So three weeks the trail will be open this year. The only good I can see of this is that some major trail repairs were done this year. Hopefully that will make for a quick opening next year.

      No. I wish I was. If you hurry up and get the interior back in you will have a chance at running it this year.

      Life keeps getting in the way of progress. I was planning on working on it hard and heavy the yesterday and today. Got nothing done, I was on the phone all day.
