Yep that would be Bernat the kom pup 10 weeks 30lbs. He is going to keep the mountain lions from eating our kids when he gets bigger. Doesn't seem to mind hanging on the deck in the rain with 40 degree temps this morning.

Re: Best Active Valley Meetups for Singles

Phoenix Rock Gym. Climb a couple days week to stay in shape. Bingo. That's how I met someone who puts up with me. She even likes to hike. Devils' Chasm isn't a good first hike or second hike.

Re: Kahtoola Microspikes v Hillsound Trail Crampons

@chumley
Good luck finding any. It hit 95 this weekend at our house at 7600' and 90 in Woodland Park at 9000'. BTW Use the Kahtoolas all the time no experience with the other brand.

@friendofThundergod
You may not need them after this week. :)
