Right after Max's party Lori and I took off for our first vacation alone since Hawaii when Lori was pregnant with Max. We wanted isolation, relaxation, and nature. We found a fantastic cottage near Chico. 3 miles down by 4X4, it was exactly what we wanted. We spent 3 days hiking, loving nature, eating meat on stick, drinking, and staring at the stars in the hot tub. I could have stayed many more days. It really motivates us to kick up our camping this year. We think Max is finally at an age where he will really enjoy it. Eventually we'd like to take Max with us to do a couple months on the Pacific Crest Trail.
