Thank you! Mike and I have had some conversations over the years that haunt me. Mostly because of the questions I ask, but also because talking about some of the ghosts that haunt him is "therapy" in his words. I wish everyone could talk to him about some of the accidents he has seen on the mountain over the years. There would be a lot fewer...
Thanks for the greenie and comment Ellen! Rick is great company, a real character, and very generous in many ways. I need to figure out how this greenie thing works and look forward to hiking with you one of these days!
Thanks for the greenie. Trying to bump it forward as the deadline closes in. Sorry if I don't respond timely to messages as I seem to have a hard time finding places where these are posted and only stumble on them. I agreed with you on the Monadnock thing, I may post a response soon since something happened to us last weekend due to the perception created bt non-hikers that triggers reactions to actual hikers.
If you want I can email /forward your email to the Forest Service. Or I can email them separately with the issue - was it more trash than the sleeping bag? I believe most staff have been let go for the year but hopefully something can be done next year.
