Last Post - maybe....

So, Scott and Kara are off to see the grand musicians at the awesome musical festival in Carhaix. I'm a bit jealous, to tell you the truth - music festivals are fun, and we'll miss them both, especially Scott during the summer dart league playoffs.
I'm not really sure what the rest of the group is up to these days, I assume that Ed's busy with all the kickball activities in DC, and planning his upcoming adventure ascending the seven big peaks (can't wait to hear more on that later). Jenna must be doing her trademarked good posture gait through Rhode Island live music spots, and Mike -- who knows what he's up to. I imagine it involves high design, art, and his trademarked ineffable sense of style.
To tell you the truth, I don't know if anyone's even coming to this site anymore. It's sort of dead and, if not bloated, then perhaps rotting on the vine. No new posts, no http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifnew news (and how often do you get to type that?). Maybe someone gets this on an RSS feed, and will see the new posting. Doubtless, this is just more "stuff" clogging up the server space in the grand ether.
In closing, I wanted to make a couple of points. First off, check out the link that Scott posted on the Dar Es Salaam site. The bikes and wheelchair we dragged through several thousand miles of sand can be seen at their final destination. That's something to be proud of, I think. At some point, I'm going to check and see if the bus is where we left it, too.
Finally, the money raised. Thanks to you, or maybe someone else that you know, we were able to raise a whopping 11,000 dollars for our charities. We may not have been able to cajole the bus to the Gambia, but the funds made it to where they needed to be, and that's something to be proud of. Could we have done more? Surely. But it's a start, and it's thanks to all the supporters that we were able to get that far. So pat yourselves on the back - we did something good. Inefficient? Maybe. Worthwhile? definitely. I'm proud of what we did. End result be damned.
That's it. Signing off.
you want some more good blog writing, check out mela's posts. They're fun. (note that I would reference Stuart's blog, if I knew what and where he was posting.
