If any of y'all brave Cattle Drivers are in the middle of an assignment with me, any submissions that come in during the next week will have to sit in my Inbox for a while before I get to them. I'll be away and offline from the 16th through the 23rd. Sorry for the wait, thanks for being patient!
Made it back in one piece, or peace, whichever. No risky stuff for me, beyond sledding down from a pass or walking on a snowshoe trail without snowshoes. Actually, that's more irritating than dangerous, depending on how tired you are, due to all those random steps that you land with your foot down a foot or two deeper than expected.
It wasn't even all that cold but just cold enough to do some nice granola skiing in the sun. Nice and clear almost every day, except of course the one with the lunar eclipse which was hidden by clouds!
