This issue of class notes is brought to you by the Gravity Research Foundation: working tirelessly to turn off the gravity once and for all. * Kristen Drake Patterson celebrated her 10th wedding anniversary by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. She and her hubby made it to the summit and then spent two days recovering on the beach in Zanzibar before returning home to their two boys, ages 6 1/2 and 2 1/2. * Danielle LeGrand Stubblefield spent the last eight months in Nicaragua for her husband’s sabbatical, dealing arms and kicking Sandinista ass! Her daughters, Eva, 8, and Aleta, 4, attend a local school while she is volunteering, a break from her work in community food systems policy. DLS recently caught up with Sarah Hare Vetter, occasionally visits Patty Abbott Arnow and her family in Boulder, Colo., and should be delighted to learn about Kristen Drake Patterson’s ascent of Mt. K. Holla! * Brian ‘94 and Rima Lathrop Carlson saw Karen Bossie and Chad Sisson, Jorma Kurry ‘93, and John Dunbar ‘95 during the China Lake Triathlon last summer. After the race they went and ate Chad and Karen’s pet pig. * George Samuels failed again at fantasy baseball and football this past year. Countless Colby guys took George behind the woodshed, including James Cerwinski ’95, Kevin McNulty ’97, Ben Waite ’95, and Ezra Fowler ’97. If you are interested in joining his league, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You too can take George’s money! * Aran Ryan shares that in August he had breakfast with Mark Vigoroso in Atlanta. Mark and his wife recently welcomed their third child, and Mark recently joined Atlanta-based NCR Corp. Aran writes that Vigoroso “ate everything in sight” at their breakfast, including an estimated metric ton of sausage. In October Aran had a giant glass of milk with Alex Roth in Washington, D.C. Alex hasn’t lost his edge and keeps a healthy skepticism—probably good for someone living in D.C. * Then, in January, Aran visited Erik and Michelle Torrens Gustavson in Los Angeles. The Gustavsons found the Maine version of LA, with a house that has hike-in hike-out access to the local trail network. The Gustavsons have their hands full with three growing boys. And when not flying around the country and collecting (essentially) my entire class notes column, Aran lives in Philadelphia and welcomes any visitors—including and especially Alvaro J. Madrid ’97.
