Re: Badger Creek with kids June 2-3

I still check in here once in a while, and I spotted your wonderful photos. The grin on the face of your young fisherman is priceless! So are the wildflower walk and the hot cocoa! This is the kind of trip report I love!

Re: Help - need a new PCT reroute to Rainy Pass

I always wondered that, too! You'd be the man/woman/person without a country?

Re: Help - need a new PCT reroute to Rainy Pass

You can't return from Manning Park to the USA via trail. Crossing the border into the US from Canada is now allowed only at established border crossing stations. Entering the US via the PCT (which is remotely monitored) can cost $5,000 fine and a year in jail. From the PCTA: http://www.pcta.org/disc...

Re: Lost stuffed seal pup in Jefferson Park!

Another email from Eric--he is in touch with the little boy's mom, sent her a pic ot the seal, and arranged to meet them Thursday to return the seal. Any parent (or grandparent in my case), can appreciate just how attached the little ones can get to a stuffed toy (usually a specific one) and how ups...

Re: Lost stuffed seal pup in Jefferson Park!

I just sent another pic from Eric, showing "Smoky" the Seal at Hunts Cove, riding on Eric's shoulder. Hopefully someone will post it here--I seem to have forgotten how to do it. My internet was down for about half an hour, so it's a bit delayed. I hope the little guy is able to sleep now that he kno...

Re: Lost stuffed seal pup in Jefferson Park!

Re: Lost stuffed seal pup in Jefferson Park!

Just got an email from Eric. He sent me a cute pic of the seal, which I can't seem to post here. I'm not on Facebook, but if someone will PM me their email address, I'll send it. Eric says now that he knows someone wants the seal back, he'll carry it inside his pack where it will be safe!

Re: Lost stuffed seal pup in Jefferson Park!

I'm not around much any more, but just happened to look in today. I have Eric's email address and just sent him an email about the seal. Unless he's changed email address in the last year, he will now know about it (at least when he gets out of the wilderness). EDIT: OK, that's two notifications he'...

Re: OH Button Party: 3/11 @ Hawthorne Lucky Lab

So if I can't be there, I'm not allowed to say so, or explain why? I thought it only courteous to decline the invitation, rather than ignore it, and explain why. If I'm only going to get hostile responses, I won't bother from now on.
