In December 2002, Linn Crosetto and I brought our girlfriends Leah Liao and Karen Wong on a backpacking trip in Yosemite. The snow was deep and we didn't have snowshoes, so the going was tough. The girls insisted on cooking a gourmet dinner on the mountaintop, which meant we needed to bring camp stove, tons of camp gas, and fresh vegetables and meat. As a result, us guys were loaded down with all the stuff in our packs, and had to struggle for each step as we kept sinking into the snow. The lightweight girls could run up ahead without difficulty, and would often have to wait for us to catch up. The weather was very cold; all of our water froze completely solid overnight, even though we kept it in the tents. We had a great trip!
