Winter Fun

for a good cause.

On February 12th 2011, for reasons I can’t fully recall, I participated in a fund-raising event at Stevens Pass.  When I say, “I can’t fully recall”, what I really mean is that I do not know what possessed me to register for this event.  I remember *when* I learned about the event and decided that it would be fun to do.  That would be when gozi and I went to the Mountaineers Demo Days event in January.  Tubbs, Atlas, MSR and a few others were giving FREE demos of different makes and models of snowshoes at the Mountaineers campus at Snoqualmie Pass.  We went up to try out different shoes, and “Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer” had a tent with flyers and information.  I *still* am unclear as to WHY I decided to register, but… I did.

Less than a month later, I was registered and raising money for the event.

In the end, I raised $745 (My “goal” was $500 – which I *thought* was pretty optimistic!) and kicked my own butt for the 5k  course.  For a brief look into the event, check THIS out.  I was AMAZED at how FAR 5k was on snowshoes, but I have to admit, I’m already planning on doing it again next year!

A new era for the Chronicles and Egypt

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kaddee @ 4:56 pm

A lot has been happening with friends in Egypt. Mubarak is gone, the military is in command, the cabinet has been dissolved, people are still hungry and poor. This is the beginning of a long needed change, however it is not going to be easy. Egypt has set a precedent for the region – what happens in the next few months will truly determine the path for Egypt and the Middle East.
