Lead AAI Guide Forest McBrian called in with this dispatch:

We’re sitting out another day of funky weather here today. Supposedly, the high pressure arrives on Monday, so we’re hoping to move up Sunday or Monday. Today we’ve had a glorious breakfast of hashbrowns, sausage, eggs, and cheese this morning. Everyone’s happy and healthy. We have a great group of company.

(I asked Forest what people are doing to stay entertained….)

People are reading books, listening to ipods, watching movies on ipods. We just hang out and talk a lot around meals. Overall, we’re just chilling!
