Roughly once a year, a group of my guy friends from college go on a trip together. We have been doing this since 1995 and this is our 21st trip. (We are going backpacking in Colorado this year.) It is hard to schedule six guys that now live in four different countries (including the US), but we work at it. This is one of the highlights of my year and I am grateful that my wife (who is 4 months pregnant and will be working full time and taking care of our nearly 11 month old, and hosting our church small group while I am gone) is supportive and really encourages me to do these trips.
This year only four can come so we are missing our Canadian and Indonesian compatriots, but have our French and all of the US ones.
I have at least once post scheduled every day while I am gone. There will not be any free book posts, but there is a review and a sale book post almost every day. Things should be back to normal on Tuesday.
