I am now (once the paperwork goes through, really) the proud owner of a 1995 Toyota 4Runner. I'll be leaving tomorrow and stopping in Reno, SLC, Denver, Kansas City, Lexington, maybe DC, and then Philly. Then I'm flying back here for a wedding, then I'm in Philly for the next two years. I miss California, the Berkeley hills, and all my friends in the state already.
A good article was written about Michael Popov for Outside Online.
