Nope, not today... haha, I'm always late-- you can just call it April Fool's. Actually, I just wanted you to see the white pines by the house. They must have had a great year because they dumped cones all over the yard. I've never had to actually DO anything about that before.
This picture is from today. I've already filled the wheelbarrow three times and there is at least one more load! It was warmer today and I came in with my hands just covered in sap. There was no way that would come off with soap, and I didn't want to wash in gasoline or paint thinner. I decided to try vinegar. It was interesting. It didn't really remove the sap but it changed it so that I could rub it off. Then I washed with dish soap and that did a pretty good job!

|Spent 1.5 hours working on the maps. Got all the base maps printed and ready for custom markings.
Sent an update email to the other hikers and got some answers from them about food preferences, so I can start planning the actual menus.
