Ed, it was a pleasure to see you at Cardigan Lodge a month ago as you headed out to the Skyland trail. We will miss you here, but thanks to the Internet none of us is any further away than you want to be.

Totally agree with this quote. well said. I met you on the way up Isolation in 2009 for the flags on 48. I was with Dave Bear and a friend of his. Best wishes and happy hiking. The south is so lucky to have you both. Keep us up to date on your adventures down there.I hope you two continue to share new peaks and trails for many years to come. The Whites will miss you but the South is lucky to have such a nice person on the trails.
May you find adventure wherever you end up
Wish I would have known it was Bon Voyage we could have grilled for you after your Washington summit! We all will certainly miss you around here and I wish you folks many happy trails! It's been a pleasure to meet you and Lauky here and there and spend time together on the trails! As others have said your trip reports and photos have always been something to look forward to and you will always be a part of this community no matter how many miles or mountains are between us! If you're ever headed back up this way give us a heads up so we may cross paths again! Best regards, Dave Bear & Thor.
Here's a picture of Lauky and me taken on our very last hike in New England. It was taken on top of Pleasant Mt. Maine. I don't know how many times I've been up there but it's somewhere between one and two hundred times. It was an emotional moment when we reached the summit that day.
