My award–worthy presentation “Hike Half Dome in a Day; Anyone can do it*” will begin its 2013 tour of Bay Area in REI stores. I’d love to meet you ALL at one of the stores near you. Come early and let’s do dinner. You need to register with the REI to ensure a seat. I had 134 heads at REI Saratoga 2 years ago. Let’s share fellowship and chat about the permit process.
The process to apply for your permit is now open. Of course, you have the same odds as getting hit by a blowing ball while hiking up the Mist Trail. Here are my dates. If you have not attended before, I also give away a bottle of Carpe Diem Wine. Good stuff. Perfect for a post-hike celebration. All talks are PowerPoint with a ton of neat photos and I do a gear show and tell. They will go from 7 pm–8:30 pm. Other Bay area stores will be set up soon.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” – Groucho Marx
