One short week from today

On February 18, I’ll be doing a slide show at the Mountaineers Hall in Tacoma. I’ll be showing images and telling tall tales from the kayaking trip I took around the island of Newfoundland back in 2000. It was an amazing adventure, three full months of paddling pleasure and pain. It ended up being the trip of a lifetime and the stories I collected there are still a source of pride, and humor.

It’s a free show, no charge. The Tacoma Mountaineers do this every month as part of their “Open House.” You don’t have to be a member to come to the show, and you can contact the Mountaineers Sea Kayaking Committee through their web site for more information. (Or email me, whatever.)

It’s going to be a real slide show with real slides, celluloid pictures instead of digital images, real colors instead of millions of ones and zeros. I don’t know that this makes much of a big deal either way… for some reason it just seems cooler to me right now. (Ask me how I feel when the first projector starts spitting out slides at random and the second one won’t advance. I may not be as cool then.)

Anyway, the show is scheduled for one week from today. As a public service and to give you time to round up some friends, I’ve been running a reminder every Friday, and I’m going to continue, right up until the 18th of February. (In fact, this has probably been overkill, all these annoying nags about whether you’re coming or not. Didn’t mean to bug ya’. But, are you going to be able to make it?) If you haven’t put it on your calendar yet, I hope you do and please, bring people with you. Send these reminders to your peeps, get them to turn out. I would love to pack out the hall and set some kind of record.

It’s a good story, you won’t be disappointed.
