Last year Annie and I led our first run . We named it " Lost Friends Memorial Run " . That name came about when I was thinking of run we could lead . As I went through some of my favorites I began to realize things like : " the last time we were on Glacier Ridge , Jim M. was with us ,,,,, the last time we were on Hancock, Dougie was with us ,,,, the last time we were on # 10 hill , we were in Pauli's rig ,,,, the last time we did the Browns / Breakneck loop we were with Butchie and we were taking Kurt's ashes up to a special place ,,, the last time I was up there , Steve was with me ,,,,,,,,"
One of those friends had to move away . All the others have passed away in the last few years . The more I thought about it the more I realized these mountains around here are full of memories of working , hunting , wheeling ,climbing , prospecting , hiking and camping with friends that have moved away or passed away .
As we said in our last years post for this run ,," perhaps you too have had a good friend move away ,or sadly , pass away... "
Now sadly we will be adding another friends name
to our list of "passed away " for this years run-- our friend and a friend to a whole lot of folks on this forum,, Pete Brody.
We would be honored if you would consider joining us.
This years run is posted up on the calender for Saturday July 20th 2013 . We will be doing the Swan Loop
