Re: [pct-l] RE: Just an observation...but
Chevy Coyote -- I hope your response was mostly a pun -- but not a funny one
as it was degrading to Mexicans and not a positive response to Jim's
observation and desire to include others on the PCT. It sounds like you
were personally offended at Jim's response -- it would have been better if
you had gone off line to respond to him. I am not Mexican and I was hurt
that your response belittled a beautifully cultured people who are, contrary
to the tone of your note, very intelligent, hard working, religious, family
orientated, etc., and have a love for the beauty of our world. The coyote
is also a beautiful, family oriented animal who is hard working, it is just
those two legged "Coyotes" that scare the living dayslights out of me.
My husband and I have also made the same observation about the lack of other
ethnic peoples hiking the trail and wished there was a way we could share
our love of backpacking with them so they too could be aware of the beauty
of backpacking. A thing shared is all the more wonderful for the sharing.
It would have been so much more productive if you had come back on the net
and given us some more positive comments. You evidently are an intelligent
person and since you listed some very expensive equipment you have a
knolwedge and probably a love of it -- not for profit and murder as the two
legged "Coyotes" do. I will be waiting for your helpful comments -- we can
all learn from each other!
