Hi Mike, Hope you and your group are safe and having fun. Just read this from Muir: “There is not a fragment in all of nature…when we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” Stay hitched up there : ) Can’t wait to see you and hear about the trip! Love, K
