This past week I met up with my good friend Alan Bauer at the Issaquah Brewhouse - one of our favorite meeting places (outside of trails, of course!).
Alan and I have been good friends for a few years now, so it is always fun to get together. We talk shop, current projects we are working on, future projects we want to work on, future outings we would like to do together, family, sports - heck, maybe a list of things we don't discuss would be shorter!
Alan of course has been busy co-authoring the Dayhike series books for The Mountaineers, and has been chomping at the bit for spring to arrive so he can hit the trails again. In the meantime, we'll probably try to do some desert hikes in the coming months. I wonder if Alan knows anything about hiking over there? Hmmmm...
