This blog might never have been created had not my brilliant and beautiful daughter decided to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.
But she did so decide, and thus ventured to visit her presumptive sire (your blogger) for the purpose, inter alia, of borrowing from same some of the finest outdoor gear in the world. Upon being equipped with down sleeping bag, Filson duffel bag, and other goodies accumulated from diverse adventures yet to be reported, none of which involved an activity as romantic as climbing Kilimanjaro, she decided I had lived long enough without a blog in time and, utilizing technology and skills which did not exist when I was her age, assisted in the creation of this electoric impossibility.
So, with some fear of the unknown, the Edwinian Blog Adventure is hereby offically launched.
