Well done, Brian, and hope the reviews keep coming! Costco, eh? I've seen them at the one by me, but never checked them out. It's on the to-do list now. Again, congrats and fantastic pictures and stories!

Ashleigh, I'd love to get some trip reports up. Unfortunately, I'm still in recovery mode from an accident last year. I'm hoping to have some report-worthy trips this summer, though!

Daniel, the Costco socks are pretty legit. I'd write a review except I'm not sure what else to say about them. They're socks, and they're a lot cheaper than smartwool. Sam's club socks aren't too shabby either.

And G00SE, working a ropes course was pretty much the best job I ever had. Especially in the Cascades in June... the mosquitos weren't quite as bad fifty feet up in the trees! I think most Coloradans are secretly jealous of Washington. It was a great place to work and explore.

Congrats CO_West on the recognition.

Looking forward to reading some reviews and trip reports this summer. I know teachers don't have time for much else when school is in session. Keep it up and hope the recovery is smooth.

Congrats Brain,

Hope your recovery goes well. I was just in a car accident, ironically on my way out of town for a 3 day backpacking trip...major bummer. I'm lucky nothing was broken but know how frustrating it can be being forced to take some down time. My dad went to Western and has some good stories of hunting and traveling around the country in that area. I've spent some time pining over maps of the West Elks...looks like superb backpacking potential. Hope that perhaps next time I come to visit my parents I can explore the area some. So many awesome places to still see in my homestate. Enjoy!

 I hope all is well, Lah, and that you're healing quickly and completely.
