    Hi Christine, it was great to have another couple of grandmothers along on the trip! I would love to receive the photographs you took: [masked] Fabulous scenery yesterday and a great group of people. Note regarding the advance planning though - the timing was waaaaaaaaay off on the length of time to complete the snowshoe. Hopefully on the next trips the estimation of the time will be more accurate!

    This is how the carpooling looks like right now:

    We have 22 seats, and 20 people have got a seat. That means, there's one person who will need to politely ask Christine for a ride.
