I have to admit, I for one, had not put any deep thought into this.  After
reading your deep thoughts on it, I have decided you are right, John.  I
really don't see the need for such a project.  I also would not be offended
if someone else took my name (and I know there are other "Flatlanders" out
there, hence "Illinois" Flatlander ). I suppose it would be a little unhandy
if there were two of the same name on the trail in the same year however, but
I am sure that would be ironed out by adding something to one of the names.
 Nah, we don't really need this.  We do need to lighten up!
