Ascent Trip Report

My poor old Mom, Jane Sewell, passed away on June 8, so i flew down to San Antonio for her funeral. on return Jed and I did an overnite hike up to camp on the top of Graves Peak MT/ID in one of the small roadless areas north oif Hoodoo pass out of Superior MT. Cool camp just 100 feet from summit but scarely lightning during evening. Next day we hiked along snowy divide up Illiniois Peak, then out spur into Idaho, up Gold Crow Peak, then back in rain. These 3 summits are dedicated to Jane,she was a financial idiot, but i loved her anyway. she never could understand why i wanted to live up here in the arctic and waste my life climbing mtns. what a year its been these last 12 months. june 14 is a year since the b**ch Sita ran off with the fat, outashape, plumber Doug Folks. so, my wife left me, i lost over 100k in divorce, ruined my retirement, fell in love with another Nepali girl half my age who the embassy mite or mite not allow to come to usa, moved to Missoula, lost my job, lost all my friends, and my mom died! what could possibly happen next?
