[nct-l] From the desert to the swamp

Hey folks, hope everyone had a good holiday and got to spend some time 
outdoors. I just got back from my California/Arizona trip, and it was 
everything I had hoped for and more. Not only was my first visit to the 
desert (Joshua Tree National Monument) absolutely astounding, but I caught 
baseball games in four new parks - Dodger Stadium, Edison Field, San Diego 
and Phoenix. I have a friend on the PCT right now, and between his journal 
and photos that I'm about to post for him, and my brief visit, I'm hooked. 
2004 should be a good hot summer.

In the meantime, I'm about to take off on a Michigan hike to do the 
Midland-Mackinac Trail (the Mid-Mac for short?). Recently dedicated though 
long in the works, I just heard about upon returning from an injury-shortened 
jaunt on the AT. Jerry and Connie Allen provided some great info, along with 
a warning about some soggy going. If anyone else would care to share 
anything, by all means let me know. I've 12 days set aside, so 20 mile days 
with a couple 1/2 days in town will get it done. I'll write back in a couple 
weeks and let you know how it went. 

Hope everyone is swell, joel

P.S. Anyone else headed to the NCTA Convention in August?
