Dick -

I should apologize - that message wasn't supposed to be for public
consumption.  I had two copies of Chip's message - one private and one on
the list and when I answered, I didn't pay attention to the outgoing address.

Anyway - yeah, one day.  And the water holes were just beginning to ripen.
It was beautiful, spectacular, awesome - and the weather was just right
(sunny, mid 70's).  But I don't recommend doing the whole loop in one
day - the last half mile was a  blur.   It makes a long tough day.

And having been back at work for a week,  I AM ready to go back.

Have a good day,
