Live from Portola.

Work has started on the 165 in preparation for re-wheeling a week from today. So far Norm and I have completed putting the spring rigging back up, now it's on to setting up shoes and wedges. Kirk and Dick have made progress on removing more gunk in places that will be inaccessible later. The snows have passed, and we are onto some nice weather. More folks should start showing up tonight for the marathon work session. Stay tuned...
