[pct-l] Introductions

I also like the idea of introducing ourselves.

I have been teaching economics at the University of Michigan-Dearborn 
for about fifteen years.  Before that, I attended universities in 
Washington state.  I grew up in Spokane and Walla Walla, Washington.  
I have been backpacking sporadically since my early teens.  I am now 
47.  I have never backpacked a long distance, but hope to do a hunk 
of California this summer with another economist from Nevada.  Given 
that there will be two economists doing the planning, we expect to 
have five or six sets of predictions about the outcome of the trip . 
. . . and likely we will be wrong.

When dealing with campfire flames, you must act quickly and
decisively if you wish to extinguish them, you cannot ignore them.  
The opposite is true on the internet.
