[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?
