Time and space
I am sitting here trying to imagine what you are going through. I freely admit while Iunderstand depression I don't understand YOUR depression.
I want to discuss a couple of the things you talked about.
One is giving me space to grieve. I want to assure that the grieving process is well underway. I am no stranger to grief and have dealt with grief far beyond what you can imagine and have done so many times over.
I have done literly hundreds of hours in grief supportgroups and am dealing with this in a healthy way.
The other is in giveing kari and I the space we need to heal things.
We are both doing our work on what we feel we need to. I am takeing a really new direction with this for me. I have been one to cut all ties and end things as I did with yiu so many years ago. Today I am doing things I have never dreamed of doing in no small part to haveing you in my life as an imsperation. I am looking at my failers and will be taking them to a shrink soon so that I may grow to be a better man for you.
I don't know if kari and I will ever put a relationship back in place nor do I know what that might loke like. The only thing I know is that if we do it wil be substantly different than what we had before.
I know you have been heavly influnced by your past poly relationships as I have. My heart crys for what you have been through and for the the harms the difficulties between kari have caused you. I do hear and acknowledge the psychic pain you are in. I wish I could allieviate it and know I cannot.
What I want you to know is you have the space you need to work your way through whatever it is.
I love you deeply and you are worth waiting for...
Yours in leather and love

Apparently there's lots of trail damage this season: Seattle P-I article
. :( Too bad, since the Mountain Loop Hwy has most of my favorite hikes. Has anyone been out there lately?
|Wednesday, April 4th, 2007|
Looking for suggestions for good short-hike venues, both for all-day hikes and for quickie hikes that can be reached and completed in the couple of hours between work and dark. Best options would be based on starting points in either Woodinville or Lynnwood.
Anyone have any favorites?

Today on the trail I saw a lookout station perched atop a mountain on the other side of 90. I'm planning on going up to it Monday (Granite Mountain; steep, dry, lots of being out in the open) if anyone wants to join me.

Saturday hike: Snoqualmie Tunnel
The Snoqualmie Tunnel is a 2.3 mile long former railroad tunnel now part of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, that cuts through the mountains near Hyak. Bring flashlights.
I plan on getting to the John Wayne trail at the Annette Lake/Asahel Curtis trailhead off of I-90 exit 47, which crosses the JW. It's about 5 miles from there to Hyak, at the far end of the tunnel, which seems like a good lunch and turnaround point, unless people feel like going further, along Keechelus lake.
Meet at the Bellevue Eastgate Park and Ride, 9ish?
|Friday, June 23rd, 2006|
Leave Victor's Coffee shortly after 9, stop in Monroe, and then out to the trailhead. Sounds good?
|Thursday, June 22nd, 2006|
Tonga Ridge seems to be the popular choice for a hike (Though, looking at my maps, it looks like it'd be more suitable for a 2-3 day backpacking trip, especially if someone can drop off people at the trailhead off of I90 and pick up off of SR2, or vis versa).
Time? Meeting place? morningmoon
, can you get to Monroe without much trouble?
Anyone up for a day hike Saturday?
|Monday, June 5th, 2006|
ISO hiker (M or F or both and more) for day hikes and some backpacking on Moderate to nearly Strenuous trails in the North and Central Cascades (Mountain Loop Highway a favorite) and Olympics with friendly F hiker, 47yo. Prefer slower pace and wonderment mindset. :) Hoping to hike weekly or every other week, available daytime 7 days and weekends. I have most of the gear for two people, if needed. You provide vehicle and half gas, I will provide lunch and half gas for day hikes; for backpacking, you provide vehicle and gas, I provide most of our food (with consultation). That's negotiable, too.
RSVP ASAP! The weekend approaches! :) Do hope to hear from you soon!

I just joined FGP. I'm very interested in getting outdoors with likeminded folk in the area. My biggest hurtle is the fact that I don't have a car, so I would need to carpool for any events. I'm also a slowpoke most of the time. :) Not that that is necessarily a bad thing!
I have lots of outdoor experience as a leader and instructor at Spokane Parks and Recreation Outdoor Div. I can teach snowshoeing (saw the post about lessons), xc skiing, canoeing and kayaking. I've backpacked, and am hoping to make my first solo trip this year (tried last year, but life got in the way).
Anyway, I have a sense that Spring is truly upon us, and as the sun shines and snow melts, I get more and more excited to be out there! Hope to meet and walk with yous soon.

Reminder: Saturday Morning Hike
Shake off the blahs with a quick hike
on Cougar Mountain
. An excuse to get out from behind the computer, get fresh air, dust off the boots and pack. Its not wilderness per se, but is easy to find, to hike, and is nearby.
Saturday, March 18th - 10am
Red Town Trailhead
Driving Directions to reach Red Town Trailhead:
Take exit 13 and drive south up the hill on Lakemont Boulevard SE for 3.1 miles. Look for the gravel entrance to the Red Town Trailhead on the left side of the road.
Take exit 10 and follow Coal Creek Parkway SE 2.4 miles to the shopping center. Turn left at the light onto SE 72nd Place and then left again at Newcastle-Coal Creek Road. Follow Newcastle-Coal Creek Road for 1.9 miles. Look for the Red Town Trailhead just after the big bend on the right side of the road.
We'll hang around the trailhead until 10:20 or so..

Ok, I'll take a stab at this "organizing" thing, with a quick hike
on Cougar Mountain
. An excuse to get out from behind the computer, get fresh air, dust off the boots and pack. Its not wilderness per se, but is easy to find, to hike, and is nearby. March 18, 10 am-ish?

Let's try this again
Snowshoeing (Or x-country skiing, if that's your thing; people can carpool) next Sunday?
|Wednesday, February 15th, 2006|
Anyone up for snowshoeing this Friday or Saturday? I'd prefer Friday, but if more people are free Saturday that'll do.
|Sunday, January 8th, 2006|
Anyone want to tempt the elements and do a day-hike in February? Something short and sweet, with minimal snow... :)

Polar Bear on New Years Day?
OK, it's a little last minute, but does anyone know of an accessible lake that would be *ahem* appropriate for a New Year's Day polar bear jump?
I got my blue nose living in Alaska, so this should be a breeze, but
adventure always loves company. Any one up for it? Current Mood: adventurous
