Say Switchback,
Just got back from extended vacation in Hawaii and noticed just 1 post 
for all of October, so far, on the PCT-L.
It looks like the list is dying a slow death since you and I stopped 
sharing our many years of hard earned? hiking experiences during a time 
when "Hard Core Mountain Men" like Switchback & Reinhold dared to roam 
around in the wilderness and bears were nervous.
Yes, a time when Switchback & Reinhold tamed the wilderness caring 
everything they needed to survive in the wilderness in "steel frame 
packs" to make the wilderness safe for the current crop of hikers 
strolling around on trails in UL Packs eating things like dehydrated 
food and Tootsy Rolls.
We needed to eat heavier things with more "horse power" like Grits & 
Beans & Grizzly Bears.
Yes, thinks have really changed since Switchback & Reinhold roamed the 
trails...and the list, especially the women, really seemed to to be 
interested in what hard core mountain men had to say, enjoyed listening 
to your words of wisdom and hiking humor and responded accordingly and 
keep the list interesting & entertaining.
Now with you gone, the list is dull and dead........The list needs you 

 ????????????????????????????? COME? BACK? SWITCHBACK? & RESURRECT? THE?
