Woe is us.

Our canoe adventure with Derek and Sara has been unceremoniously scrapped. AT&T is expecting its union employees to strike any day now, and until all of that is straightened out, Jan Michael must be able to get to work within 12 hours of said strike. Now, if we had planned to canoe down the Skookumchuck, we'd be good to go, but the Upper Missouri is just too far away. We are gnashing our teeth and booing to beat the band, but consoling ourselves with the following: we have countless other things to be thankful for and joyful about, and there are a ton of fun camping places within Washington that we can visit on weekends until this work hoopla is resolved. We'll use those new sleeping bags no matter what!

Just let me know who I can punch in the face. We look forward to doing lots of other things with you guys this summer!

So sorry. We were looking forward to the recounting of many adventures. I guess we'll just have to settle for tales of your substitute activities!

hahaha @ Derek.

I'm really depressed about the whole thing, I was really looking forward to going :(

Oh Derek - you make me laugh. I can't imagine you punching anyone in the face!!! :):)

We are sorry too; that your trip is postponed.
It will just be that much sweeter when you are able to go...something to look forward to next year??

Oh, good grief...wouldn't you know that something like this would come up?!?! Good job with staying positive about things, though! :)
