The week after we competed in the Mt Taylor Quad, we ventured up to Bend, OR to visit my brother, Gavin, and Sara's sister Megan. We had a great visit and actually got to explore Bend some more since our visit was rushed in September. Sara and I celebrated our birthday (we share February 25th) by completing a majority of the Bend Ale Trail with Gavin. Sara ended up becoming a competent driver with a manual transmission by necessity after our 3rd or 4th pub stop. We had a great time, though, sharing the day with Gavin and experiencing the Bend lifestyle.

Last week Sara had two friends visit from LA and they were able to sneak away into the Canyon for a few days, leaving me behind. The trip down Grandview Trail to Hance Rapid was Shannon and Herbie's first trip into the Grand Canyon and Herbie's first time ever backpacking! They had a great time escaping the Flagstaff wind and experiencing the beauty of the Canyon. For Sara trip was a great escape from a too busy month and a chance to have a wonderful visit with friends.
Sara has also found time to take EMT and psychology classes at the community college so is back into the student world of stressing for tests and finding time to read. She was able to take classes only on Tuesdays though so she is still able to guide some river trips. Between now and when we leave to finish the CDT she gets to guide 5 trips, somehow fit in finals, and go up to Missoula for a visit before we officially decide to move. Busy, busy!

I finally broke down and joined the world of Twitter, both for Sea Level Sucks and personal purposes. If you would like to follow our adventures on a more regular, mundane basis follow us @sealevelsucks and @forrestboughner. That's all until May!
