Would you believe it was standing room only for our January meeting? Steve Garrison, our newly created computer guru and webmaster, held an ultimate recycling class. He showed us how to repair and reuse our hopelessly virus infested computers! Over 50 people showed up to learn how to keep their computers out of landfills and keep more money in their pockets.

Backpack in the Sipsey Wilderness
I had a good backpack last weekend at the Sipsey Wilderness. Four other brave souls came with me to spend the night near Shiprock. Saturday we explored the Shiprock area and then had a nice fire and supper. Sunday morning about 2:00am the flood came and by 6:00am Thompson Creek had risen about 3ft. I was high and dry in my hammock and slept well through all the thunder and lightning. We hiked out in the rain and walked through several swollen creeks. Good times!
