Friends gathered round a warm fireplace. The dark night gathered beyond the cedar walls. Lights danced outside on the black water's mirror. And within, laughter rose to the rafters.
What a way to celebrate adventure! To have friends gather in good cheer and filled with shared excitement. With good words signed on my expedition jacket, I am becoming ready for the parting. I'll carry all of you along with me now. And I promise, I'll bring back stories!
With so much encouragement and excitement in support, you all make me feel like a can soar!
