eventful, but in a quiet way
round the world some of them were trying in vain
to convince the rest of us that it would be a fun
idea to go bomb a lot of the folks down in Iraq, D. Peck and friends spent the
fall and winter hiding out in the safest place they could think of.
may not find this tangibly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a
good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught
up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.
over now, alas!, and YAYY! So where's the snow?!
2002 blasted past us scarcely noticed -- work, work, work! -- but with just
time for hikes with good old friends in Italy and Switzerland (Mont
Tendre, above) and a splendid visit from Marlowe Tyson Peck. Now it's time
to move on.
superseded summer, as it always does, and amongst nightmare preparations for the
gawd-amighty 8th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties (COP8),
some very nice September-October hikes were hiked with Joe Pirri and Dan Hinckley
and Joe Pirri, respectively.
COP8 preps consumed most of the autumn, and the debacle
finally took place in Valencia, Spain, 18-26 November 2002.
long after which, snowshoeing 2002-3 got seriously
under way, 8 December 2002.

Jura fun on snowshoes
end of winter 2002-3, a trip to the Land
of Pop Iniquity in late April -- alas!
no enriching photos of malls and Superfund sites or embarrassing screen shots
of the FOX network, but yes indeed!! Some very nice photos of Kristin's church
in Boston and Marlowe humouring the Old Dad (as above).
about the summer?
taking out more insurance. Marlowe's coming to visit in June, and Kristin's coming
for a month, and maybe a trans-Pyrenees hike in France and Spain or in the Dolomites,
or in the Gran Paradiso national park in Italy, or maybe somewhere else. And lots
of local road riding in the Suisse Romande on our treasured LeMond
"Tourmaley", named "Greg",
and some Jura mountains on our Scott "Boulder"
named "Humvee". And, of course, saving
wetlands in a bureaucratic manner.
Bog willing, we'll meet you back here for Winter 2003-2004!
