Greetings Happy Crampers!
Yesterday I was out in my front yard enjoying the sunshine whilst cutting blooming forsythia stems when I got buzzed by a hummingbird! Later in the day I see a guy in Bermuda shorts!
IS IT NOT SPRING?
OK, OK... so Spring Equinox is still a month away, but here on Whidbey ISland, WA, we've been enjoying an unusually mild winter. That puts happy thoughts of roadtrips, campfires, and meet-ups with dear friends in our heads!
Just to let you know that Simon and I are fine. Our first meet-up of the 2010 season is planned for the April "NOG" (Northern Oregon Gathering, aka "Non-organized Gathering"). Can't wait to get back in the saddle again!
Meantime, here's a link to a NY Times article about camping retirees, "RETIREES TRADE WORK FOR RENT AT CASH-POOR PARKS": http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/18/us/18campers.html
Cheers and Happy Cramping!
