I think some kind of education program is a good idea to create some baseline awareness in some people. But I think that something like that would be a supplement to, NOT a substitute for face to...

I've never been in that area. But isn't this part of the much heralded "CL50" that the state and various advocates have been trying to promote? It would seem if we are trying to promote something...

This is VERY encouraging. I've been preaching the need for this (to deaf ears) for about a decade. It's nice to know that the DEC may finally be listening. This is the first thing I have seen from...

My longest day was on the Great Range, because I was waiting for a much slower partner - probably 20 hours. (Same partner had done the loop in the past in 12.) We're all good; that partner has...
