Many thanks to everyone, particularly Roseann, for the helpful input!
And - my goodness - all blessings for my wife who, not days into the trip, told me, "You're going to get us a fridge, right?"
Here's to the good people of ExPo, and 'round the world. I recall a thread once upon a time about "what makes and expedition an expedition?" It really does have little to do with lockers an lifts; it has more to do with people, the land, and learning about how those two work together. More later.
Thanks, again, for being here.
