Re: [at-l] Page 16, September Backpacker Magazine

Ah yes, my 15 minutes of fame ... I finally get in a
national magazine, and it's a picture of me after I've
been in the woods for four days! Good thing it's not
scratch & sniff! ;-)

I may have missed an e-mail back there, but two other
listers are in the picture as well (maybe from the
"other" list--I don't rightly know): "Auntie Coosa"
(who enjoys twice the fame, since her recipe is in
there, too!) and "Swallowtail." It's in the "16 women,
11 states, 1 website" article in "Signposts." BTW, the
woman they interviewed, Elisa Tubbs, is my hiking
partner here in Louisana!

Now Solar Bear, about that watermelon-wielding
terrorist ... star crossed? With sweet li'l ole me? 
Hmm, now there's a nice thought ... ;-)

I have such fond memories of fresh blueberry pancakes at Sunfish Pond in Worthington State forest in New Jersey on the AT.

It made me think of all the blueberries we ate in Maine last year as we made that final approach to Katahdin and the great conversations we had with total strangers in trailside blueberry patches...
