    That forecast looks perfect.

    I had to drop off my bags at Saint Arnold Brewery yesterday, so it's too late to worry about what to pack. I forgot sunscreen. I bet I can bum some Sunday morning.

    Yeah, I was surprised by that. It is pretty torn up, but not in the places where my hands go. New tape will be nice. Sigh.
