All haave been preparing in different parts of the country, in their own
distinctive way. Mary's taken to snowshoeing in Detroit, Karen's trail
running in Tennessee, and John....well, John had never seen a photo of a
polar explorer who didn't have a beard, so he decided to grow one just for
this event!) Join us during this adventure!
