It’s with a heavy heart I hear of another long-time lister joining me on the sidelines.

However, Ben sounds like  a keeper, for someone with the long-distance-hiking mindset.  I have adopted a couple of “rescue” dogs, with no training and some baggage resulting from earlier neglect and, also, likely from some abuse.  They need your mindset to overcome their past.  Good luck and enjoy the trip.

Let’s start with the idea that many of you haven’t been kept up with our lives.  Not that it’s been 

deliberate, just that we’ve been very busy, sometimes very confused and a lot of the time, very 

tired.  So… the 30 second update is that we (meaning Jim) couldn’t do much hiking this year because 

of knee and foot problems.  Probability is that long-distance hiking is a long shot from now on.  

NOT happiness.  



It’s been a wonderful, time-consuming, laugh-inducing, frustrating, tiring and satisfying week for 

us.  And we’re looking forward to many more unique experiences with Ben.
