Just finished the final edits

4/23/10 — Just finished the final edits of the master proofs for STORM MOUNTAIN. To celebrate I’m going to go play on Mt Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak. The original plan was to begin the climb at 2:00 AM tonight (typical alpine start time), but the weather is looking . . . well, stormy, so we’re going to postpone a day. Fine with me. As the climber’s saying goes: summitting is optional, returning mandatory. Besides, my guess is that the mountain will still be there.
