It was a 5 hr drive for me, the last 1.5 hrs was tough. I got home at 12:20am and fell asleep in the front seat of my truck til 6am! :boring:

Trekker said he got home at 5:30am. :retard:

It was a great weekend! :D I finally caught up on sleep last night! :D

I am just loosing the pain in my skin, and almost fully peeled. Last night I caught up on sleep, sleep lost mainly from sunburn, I did this once before and swore to never do it again! Snowy, you need to commute to the Sierra taking turns sleeping/driving.

I got lucky this time, my forehead peeled just a little, but the color is still there. The rest of me didn't peel. :D

I burned the weekend before and swore I would re-apply sunscreen. Think I learned? :\

I was carpooling til I lost my hiking partner . . . :angry: Time to start looking! :unibrow:

Hi Hikerduane
I too like having my pancakes with just jam..I do that a lot at home instead of syrup & it is very good I think...you don't even really need butter. I think I will have to do the pancakes on a trip for a nice change
It would be neat to go on a trip with Sequoia...are you talking about the one she is planning in late July?
Apple butter is good too on pancakes :)

madeintahoe, I was thinking Carol had a trip earlier too, but it was more than likely the trip in July.

Sorry, I'm very partial to STRAWBERRY.:) Did you know that I have the strawberries they found with Iceman when they dug him up? Still in my freezer being hoarded.
Piece of cake.
