My body just feel like lead lately - I think it has something to do with this awful heat combined with humidity. I have a tough time getting out of bed in the morning and I'm supposed to be heading out backpacking again tomorrow. I'm headed out to the Coachella Valley to work today - that should be nice and warm.

Sure sorry you're not feeling too well - I completely understand about the wx having an affect. Either way I do truly feel you have the mental strength and persistence to make so many summits that others (e.g. me) would just throw in the towel.

I'm two weeks away from finishing a large project at work then I can finally get out in the mountains myself.

Kathy- Sorry to hear that but yeah, you can still do it. Can anyone go with you? Are Bruce and Brent still going now or can they go later in the week? I know you've been wanting to do that one for a while. And I hope you feel better and stronger soon!

Thanks Shawn - I'm sure you'll be relieved to get out in the mountains when your project is done.

Sooz - I was just trying to meet Bruce and Brent for summit day - I wasn't going in the same day anyway, so they weren't counting on finding me. I'll figure it out - I don't mind going solo - there are benefits in going solo as there are benefits in going with others. I really don't want to be out there in stormy weather anyway. It's supposed to be clear by Friday - I'll still take the days off but they'll just be different days.

Well, here I sit in my office still. It looks like I'm going to be sitting here most of the time until August 10th when my current project is due but that's okay. That's the nice thing about backpacking and hiking - it usually can be fit around the work schedule when it's within driving distance.

I hope to get out for a day hike on Saturday and then it's going to be soo nice to have some extra time off after the 10th when I'm not worried about a deadline.

Same here......currently approaching a hard deadline with much left to do. All i can think about is the second half of August when it's all history and time to get into the mountains.

I heard this on the radio the other day .....

we can change the laws of gravity.....but the paperwork is killing us
