What a wonderful way to start one's day -- reading your trip reports.
You know, we have all these books written by "pro's" to whom the
artful little ways to finesse hiking/housekeeping are second nature,
and who, in ignorance of their knowledge, forget to tell us of these
little things to speed our day -- or ease it along. The *really cool*
thing about reading *your* trip reports is that I get the sense of
wonder at seeing deer in the (truly) wild, the joy of sleeping till
I'm no longer tired, the satisfaction at establishing an efficient
routine in a new environment. These are things that *I* forget about
-- too many miles hiked? or too many days "away" from the woods?
Thanks for the write-up.
