Come back anytime - I'd be more than happy for your company on a run up to Ogawayama!
As for the upcoming trip, I've got two days scheduled in the gunks, and then a five day run with R.L. up in the Daks and (probably) the Laurentians (place called Val David, up near Montreal). My wife is a saint!
Keep me posted on your plans. It really would be fun to get out for a day or two, if we can set it up.
