    you + me = us

    There's like a 10% chance I'll go this year, just like every year. If neither of us have knee surgery, and we don't have any more kids (knock on vasectomy), there's a chance.

    @crombie1 and I were talking this past Fall about possibly trying to go to NEMBAfest. However, it would depend on what/when is being planned for Monkeyfest this year too.

    Wife and I booked a cabin the day after least year's 'Fest. But now it's looking like we're going to Alaska for two weeks instead. DINK problems.

    NEMBA looks for volunteers - most of it is during the event, and I think there's some sort of entry discount - @BadDNA could provide more info. What I have been doing is showing up a few days early and doing grunt work with the trail crew and with NEMBA, but I still pay full freight for admission, just 'cause.

    I'm planning to get there roughly Wednesday the 20th. If anyone else wants to join early setup, tell me and I'll try to coordinate with NEMBA and KT crews.

    @TreeSaw, email or call me if more questions or ideas!

    Volunteers in past years have been given a day of admission for each 2 hour shift that they work. I assume they will continue this arrangement again. Brenda and I have chosen to not volunteer up front this year for a couple of reasons. We'll probably still pitch in for a while if needed, but we don't want to be committed to a shift which may mean missing out on a ride with friends.

    The purpose of the trip is to visit family, but I'm running the Anchorage Marathon because it is there. How convenient!

    Neither have I but anytime I go to Burke people suggest going to Victory as well. But that would be great to meet up and get a ride in before the fest.

    By late Saturday afternoon I wound up pretty soggy with sore legs and more rain coming, so got in the van and hauled the pod home. Had a good time.
