Pam-

It sounds like you had a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to my trip out there late next month. I'm going to reserve judgment on the new VC until I see it for myself, but it doesn't sound as horrible as some people say, nor as great as others do. I think that there is going to be a learning curve for the new for-profit association, and I'm willing to give them time.

You're note about the ticks and sweat and poison ivy really hit home with me. It seems as though if one wants to get to where it is quiet enough to hear the ground speak to you, one must endure the ticks, sweat, and poison ivy. It is amazing how the best days I've had stomping through a battlefield have ended with some fairly uncomfortable evenings - but I loved it. Those feelings - nothing creepy or spooky - they are real. It was those feelings that compelled me to do what I do, much like it compels others to write, paint, teach, or volunteer. And kudos to your husband for humoring your interests yet one more time.
