Writer & designer. Have hiked in VA, TX, MI, Bolivia, Yemen, the West Bank, Iceland, NorCal and Cascades. More L than UL. I joined BPL in 2007, when these lands were green and good, as they say. Did the standard drop to SUL, back up to reasonable comfort. Many good times, and much knowledge to be found in the forum archives. Still pop in from time to watch the chaff crew hunt each other through the ruins. Maybe it’ll come back.
