Cool! Don't you remember when John brought his gear and we all went rock climbing at family camp? Most of us just went down but I think that would count.

I'm confused by the bolded comments and not bolded and some have your comments and some don't. Does this mean you've done them or not done them or what? maybe I missed something...

R. Jeffrey Davis said...

If it's bold then I've done it. The comments are just for clarification or added information.
