    Hi John,
    So sorry I missed the annual snowshoe! I strained my back shoveling snow but it is feeling better now after a good nights sleep. If you are ever down Chico-way please give me a call and maybe we can get coffee and catch up a bit - 891-8519. See you on one of these outings!

    Thanks John for the great trip on the Sacramento and for the additional links. The pictures were good and we have enjoyed looking at them. I will be watching the flows on the Rogue and let you know when it is runnable in the Lost Creek Reservoir to Shady Cover section. The Klamath is okay now but the weather is not cooperating.

    Hey John, good luck w/the weather!! I was thinking of scheduling a X-country ski at Shasta Nordic for Friday also, but I'm waiting to see the weather forcast on Wednesday, then I'll decide. I think they'll get alot of snow w/the first storm wave but rain would not be too fun. Next weekend is the last weekend the nordic center is open but we'll have to see what the weather does.
