Someone on a backpacker forum put up a "2008 slide show" and I thought, sure, good idea. So here is my slide show for 2008 - with more to be told as before the year's end we'll be in Berkeley, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Hanoi, Sapa, Hue, Saigon and Phnom Penh.
Actually, this year kind of started in November 2007 when I went on a Sierra Club backpacking trip to Big Bend. Since then I've been back backpacking in Big Bend twice and to Bandelier National Monument, Rawah Wilderness, Maroon Bells and the Wind Rivers. This is a big year for me - retiring, backpacking, David in Berkeley, Leslie & I headed for Southeast Asia in less than 2 weeks.
