    than watching it recede behind you! (I speak from experience.) I'd like to be out on the trail, but your great posts are  full of not just knowledge, but experience and enthusiasm too. Surely the next best thing to being there -- thank you, Rich!

      and a wise sentiment given the rear view aspect of life that you tout. OK, I'll agree and make the statement I find writing about such experiences a natural catharsis and it gives me both pleasure doing it and pleasure making others happy. It's not quite like I'm on the trail with my charges, teaching, guiding, sharing, and enjoying the gestalt experience, but it's another way of going about it. And that's why I find writing these missives for our community a joy, and never a lot of hard work as some commentators say and think. So here's to you and all the rest in our community, RiveroftheWest, and lots of other similar tours to different places forthcoming in this series. Tomorrow, for instance. . .we're all going to get our kicks on Rt. 66. That's the theme of the diary and you are the first to hear it from me.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
