I will post a wrap-up thread tomorrow, and remember, I’m offering 5 giveaway copies of 168 Hours to (randomly selected) people who send me completed logs. If your logs are in a form that is not easily mailed, you can just tell me you completed it and tell me what you learned, and I’ll enter you as well. Thanks for sticking with this!
