    Congratulations to Kat!! winner of the prestigious Silver Slug award from UC Santa Cruz (my fair alma mater).  And, she was featured on Good Morning America in an inspirational interview. There was never any question that brilliant Kat, who speaks multiple languages, would ace her degree come fire, flood, or drought. I would post the link to Kat’s interview but I don’t want to overstep bounds. Hopefully Kat may come along and give permission.

    Oh, and the Banana Slug is the mascot of UC  Santa Cruz.

    Very remarkable. Most schools districts are begging for teachers and they will often waive the education requirements and put you to work right away and allow you to get the education credentials as you are employed teaching. At least you have the Bachelor’s degree and that’s the main thing. Katt, I assume you are fluent in German, French and Italian?

    A big congrats!!!  Very inspiring and I will pass along to my wife.  She’s been contemplating finishing her degree in art and will get the biggest kick out of this.  Miss your trail cam vids

    Thanks everyone. I really appreciate your kind words and all the support I have received over the last decade +, including the donations after the fire. This community has meant a lot to me and once life settles down just a bit I look forward to engaging more again- about backpacking ( and trailcams :)
