Polly and Andrew McLean Add New Family Member

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | August 14, 2007      

Back in office today after trip to Utah for trade show and college tours. Realized this post about the McLean’s new baby got buried over the weekend so I moved it to the top this morning. It’s hard to give out cigars online, but perhaps some of you feel like leaving a few congratulatory comments. Feel free.
OR Show, August 11
Congratulations Andrew and Polly. Their little 3 day old girl Mira looks pretty content in gear heaven at the OR show. Might as well break her in early, perhaps they’re headed over to have Mira’s feet scanned for some arch supports, since she’ll be working the show like a pro by the age of three? In this shot they’re standing at a gear-giveaway that GoLite was doing every afternoon. When the threw T-shirts to the crowd, I swear I saw a little arm and hand reach out for a moment and grab for the swag. Is it in the DNA?

McLean baby Mira
Andrew, Polly and little readhead Mira. Wow.

    Lisa, that won’t be necessary, the plan is to set the record for most vertical feet with a papoose (grin).

    The papoose ski already has such an event. The American Birkebeiner.

    Maybe Andrew and Polly should sign up!
