Where are they now?

For all members of Venture Crew 699 (and its predecessor, Explorer Post 697):

It has been announced that Kati* and her hubby Preston are expecting their first child sometime next May. This will be Kevin & Jessi's first grandchild, and the first great-grandchild in both families. Time marches on!

Kati took part in two treks to Philmont with our crew in 1997 and 1998.

*Kati's (formerly Mary's, formerly Blendall's) married name now escapes me. Sorry.
