Where are the extreme details so that I might mentally masturbate over this, a missed trip?

BTW, props on dissing the kids. Spawn deserve no regard.

...I agree with studmuffin there, I'd love to hear more details because it's something I'm jealous of and would love to piece something together for myself in the Sierra. Awesome trip nontheless!
