Leaving Sam and Butters and Emily was a sad affair.  Sam ate my finger and Butter's grinned at me.  Emily justed gave sweet Badger faces with cute squinty eyes.





Drank the Lithia water.  Horrible.  Why did anyone ever first drink mineral spring water? Everything about it says don't drink the fucking water.  I did not feel any health benifits by drinking the liquid horror.







Thankfully Micheal made this crazy good breakfast for us at his fancy work.  I've actually never eaten something so good for breakfast.  That french toast was like no other french toast I've had.  A++++



We got to see deer walking the streets in Ashland and the Co-op of food store where all the enzymes live in food.  It really was a very pretty town.

Then off to Crater Lake.  I'm so grateful Dawn took me to this wonder of the world.  It was touristy but one of those things that later gets absorbed in your being and understanding of the world. The walk up to a lookout was narrow and looked as though you would just fall right down into the crater.  It scared me. I'm not into high things that much.  Dawn on the other hand has no fear whatsoever of high things and was happily scampering around while I gripped onto each rock a little harder than I had to.  Dawn certainly is made of tough things.

I don't remember what we were pointing at here:





The smoke from nearby fires started to creep into the crater and within an hour you couldn't see the other side of the crater.  We were very lucky with our timing.

Fuck it, i'm not turning this picture around.  I'm really angry with how shit LJ is for pictures now.



I mean snow.  Fires going on.. and snow.  This is so stupid.  This is a snow woman because she had big titties



So epic







After some lessons in ice axing, something you would only get on a Dawn trip, we headed down down down in elevation and got further and further north.  We stopped at a lake and there were the most fish I have ever seen.





More and more north, we arrived at Heidi's at about dinner time or even later if I remember. It was a funny feeling to finally meet The Real Life Tammy, Rosie, Heidi and Tori.  Mindblowing until you realised they were exactly the same as what they are on LJ.  Everyone exactly the same.

When we almost arrived I had an odd feeling of wanting to run back to Dawn and Michael's.  I'd had such a great time and I didn't want things to get weird or difficult.  It hit me that these people could be nothing like I thought.  Luckily within 10 minutes of meeting everyone I realised I had nothing to worry about.  Everyone was as easy and as nice as what I had expected.

I too cannot see the photos. Which bummed me out and on New Year's Day too. I hope you're suitably contrite about that.


I suspect it's the fault of the Russians.

I will say that I was pretty shocked that you too were exactly as you've appeared online. Of course, we've been doing all this for like 10 years, I suspect some reality had to sneak in there at some point.

Yeah I suppose we can't keep an act up for that long. You were so much the same. Now I can read anything you write in your proper voice because I know it so much. This pleases me.

So funny, I can remember thinking you were feeling the sadness of leaving Dawn and I felt so bad, like I was ripping you away. Then it was all perfect and woodsy. More, more !!! Also, no photos for me either. And socks did I mention to you I have a pair of pink Cake socks?

It was fun to read your next installment. It took me a second to realize what it was. Now I, too, am hoping to see the pictures.

You were very brave to venture to another land to stay with people you only knew through the interwebz. I am glad you ventured north so I could meet you!
