Feeling low...

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Feeling low...

No--it's not the rain....

You may have noticed that we haven't posted any trip reports yet this summer--and there is a reason for that. We've had two different hikes on our agenda, and we've had to cancel both of them because I have been under the weather.

And today, after two weeks of lesser drugs and numerous doctor's visit, we now know that it is more than just the lingering after--effcts of all that air travel. It's pneumonia.

The good news? New drugs and some enforced rest should lead to a relatively speedy cure.

We're aleady looking at the calendar and allowing our thoughts to wander to distant mountains and thin air...

Cough cough.

Maybe wait a week.

It's hard to be laid up when you have mountain plans. While you dream of trips to come,
rest up! hope you feel better soon.

Russ is right. There are threads needing your attention.


Get well soon!

Best wishes. I am glad they figured out what was going on before it got worse. You'll be out there before you know it!

Hope you feel better. Sometimes resting is hard when you want to be in the mountains. Luckily they will be there waiting for you.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
