    Default After a long and mostly inactive winter...



    ...I'm back!

    Just ordered two ES 82 Series EPs: 18mm & 8.8mm.

    I'll be heading to the Adirondacks May 28th for 9 days and wanted to build out the EP collection a bit. Last year I brought the old 8" Meade but this year I'll bring the Z10 with much better EPs.

    I have a place near the summer house that's dark green, but there's another place I've backpacked in and around I want to visit. It's an abandoned town and mine at Tahawus. Can't wait to put the Z10 and EPs through the motions there!
