Some Positive Weather News for September MFS Trip

While one storm doesn't a season make, this is some positive news for Idaho (and for us) since we have a September 7 MFS off-season permit.

We have been agonizing about logistics and all that... just keeping our fingers crossed that the weather patterns have changed. (also thinking about all those Western farmers)
