On the following pages you'll find a smattering of this and that...some travels, some get togethers...enjoy. Most of what I post on here now has to do with my backpacking trips. You'll also notice how there are links upon links within this site. I'm all about sites that host things for free (unlike my Tripod account)and haven't had the time to "downsize" my pages and photos from long ago hence all of the links.
