Ms. M,


So you have the stroke to name a trailhead after Jim Wolf for a $20 donation
but we have to beg the BLM to honor Sam Hughes?  


This whole thing is starting to play like one of those spam filled public
broadcasting campaigns.  I'd toss some bucks your (CDTC) way if I thought it
would go better than the CDTA mess went, but it looks to me like this new
group is the same people under a different name.  Please educate me.     


What are you raising the money for?  Is it to rent an office, pay yourself?
What?? (How exactly is my money going to be spent?)   


I'm all ears.





PS: I'd rename Crazy Cook after Sam in a heartbeat.

Hey folks,


CDTC has been speaking with Sam's family about many things to help honor
Sam, but all of them require involvement of the BLM who actually mange the
lands the Trail resides on.    Please be patient and as we work with Sam's
family, the BLM, and the Trail Community, we will find a wonderful way to
recognize Sam, and not create any incidents with unintended consequences.
Crazy Cook got its name by the piece of concrete that has been at the
intersection of the access road and the border for quite some time. Based on
how long its been there, it's now somewhat historical.

I am all for recognizing Sam at Crazy Crook, but we shouldn't rush into a
name change. I'm sure some of the CDT gurus can give us a more accurate
history of why it is called Crazy Cook. I don't want the Native Americans,
the BP, the illegals, the BLM, the Federales or the Mennonites across the
fence - to get upset with the CDT. Mini Mart

sam hughes funeral is july 13th at 10 a.m. at the hachita community center -
they may take his ashes to the cemetary afterwards

I am going to the funeral from deming - if any hikers want to attend and
plan on flying into el paso and then bus to deming - I may be able to get
the hikers rate at the american inn - I will be driving down in the morning
and can take about 4 people in the cab and maybe 4 more in the pickup bed -
I will not charge anything since I'm going anyways

let me know if anyone is interested

on another note I'm thinking that changing the terminus name from crazy cook
to sam hughes memorial trailhead would be appropriate - thoughts on this???
I don't know how many of you know why it's called crazy cook but it's
ancient history from the early 1900's

About Risk - Jeep Gaskin


"49, 3 kids, all of whom climb. in fact we're going sunday. I'm going to die
and so are you. so are my kids. in the perfect world I'll die before they
do, but there aren't any guarantees. so I prepare them for life the best way
I know how, doing the things that prepared me to massage my mother's feet
and tell her not to be scared, that it was her time to go. and that made it
possible to kiss my dad one last time and tell him I loved him, and walk
away. if you have depth to your soul and insights into life's lessons and
you didn't get them from risk  then congratulations but I can't relate.
climbing can be deltoids or it can be zen; it can be runout or short safe
falls; it can be skies filled with lightning or crisp air ahead of mare's
tails. It is never standing in a grocery line."
