RE: [pct-l] Re:Anthro Thesis

Thank you for your input.  I'd like you to know that I don't agree with
the ranger's comment either - I was just interested in how people feel
about length differences related to intensity of the experience. 
Personally, I have gained just as much from week-long trips in the past
than from this summer's 2 month trip. In fact, the time I spent really
seemed to blur together anyway.  If I feel I'm losing touch with what
I've gained, I can easily summon it up with a brief stroll on the beach,
in the redwoods, etc.  I also agree with what you said about it being an
individual thing.  It also depends on the point in one's life and mental
state I think.  Lastly, just to let you know, my thesis will not include any 
argument concerning hierarchy of
categories of wilderness travelers, or whether one's experience in the
wilderness is superior in any way to one's experience in an urban area - 
Happy trails in both, Zafro
