[cdt-l] From Digest Land....


I was sorry to hear about your lost camera. I think we were behind you there
and I didn't see it. I was kind of disappointed that we didn't have the
charm for the wild horses that Ben did. =)

We mailed out 2 rolls of film from Lake City that never arrived so we have a
big blank of pictures in the Weminuche. I guess that is part of a CDT hike

I nearly wanted to sit down and cry, especially after already losing a hat
and compass earlier, but sucked it like all good CDT thru-hikers should.

Fortunately I had just started a new roll and had only taken a few pictures
of an awesome sunset where we were camped the night before.  Unfortunately,
don't have any pics from there to Grants, where I replaced it.

It's about halfway from Snow Lake to Negrit Fire Station, in tall grass, on
an uncharted cross country route, you should have no problem finding it.  I
would have searched longer, but Ben was being molested by wild horses!  Plus
we had miles to make and were running low on food.
