Not a bad place to camp with a few hundred of my closest friends. It has been a long time since I camped like this, with so many folks around. My back is starting to mutter a bit about sleeping on my backpacking pads. It is fun to see old friends, hear about others. One very good friend I was so looking forward to seeing got as far as Denver and had a stroke on the way here. He is in the hospital and doing better. I am really sad not to get to see him, and am keeping him in my thoughts. Some discussion of the aging of the group. Mostly the consensus is, it happens.
