Eli, my friend.

I was in PC today, thought of you, your Dad, and the missed opportunity last May. My Dad and I spoke today, firmed up our plans for next week, discussed the weather forecast, the bugs, and a backup plan with eminent high water. We will certainly raise a glass to you both.

It's funny, on 144 heading towards Cherry Springs, I thought about how many more years we'd be making this trip. And if I'd be able to be there without him.

I believe every father who reads your post is smiling.

Because, at some point in our lives, we all begin to wonder how we'll be remembered.

That's a wonderful tribute. We should all be so lucky, as to be remember so well.
