The Friday Wrap

The past week was filled with homeschooling and other domestic duties.  The girls and I didn't hike on Thursday, though the day was perfect for an above-treeline adventure.  The scheduled arrival of a new piano (hooray!) kept us home.  Alex and I hope to hike tomorrow; the trail conditions will be interesting, though, since a mixture of snow and sleet have pelted the mountains nonstop since early yesterday evening.  We'll see what we can do.

UP: A Mother and Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure will hit the shelves on April 3, just over two months from now.  We've had a lot of major media outlets express interest, so hopefully we'll have a fair amount of publicity during late March and early April. 

The girls and I are tossing around ideas for a new long-term hiking goal.  Whatever it turns out to be, we want to do it as a way to help raise money for the Global Fund for Women.  We're still trying to figure out what kind of adventure would be the best fit for us.  The girls want to do something "big," but they don't want to be away from home for too many consecutive months.  There is one idea that keeps coming back as a real possibility...after another week or so of ironing out the details, we should be able to make an announcement.  Stay tuned.

The Long Trail?

Don't think so. That may end up being part of it, though.

That was cryptic, I know. More info to come.
