Heya Cecile! Please forgive my one sided greetings to the board. I think I'll just change it to Heya Gang, or somesuch, that way I don't inadvertantly offend half the population of the planet... :P
I'm glad ya had a blast on the Bodie run. Maybe next year we can join ya. Always wanted to see Bodie...

Bill, thanks for the welcome!

That was a damn fine idea, Charlie. Just added it to the sig... :lol:

Dave, it does indeed sound like a Jimmy Buffet lyric... :lol:

I gotta tell you folks, I really enjoy the camaraderie I see on this board. When I talk to most people I deal with on a regular basis, they think I'm outta my gourd traveling the desert outback. Which is a good thing as that means there's less folks going out and trashing the trails, but at the same time a bad thing as they don't have a place to go where they can enjoy the peace that comes with being where you want and NEED to be...

But it's really something special when there is a place you can go where everyone understands EXACTLY how you feel when you are out in the desert. The beauty, solitude and awe I experience there are unparalleled in my life. Sharing these experiences only makes them stronger in our collective memories.

Charlie, I heartily thank you for creating and maintaining this board and to the rest of the community, I humbly thank you for welcoming me in with open arms... :P

It's good to be home,

Dickie

Heya Doug!

Wonderful photography on your web page. Just stunning. The paintbrush shot is a hell of a study on light and dark. Your photographic eye is impeccable!

Here's a toast back at you for your inspiring work:
