KOIFARM..... Thank you for your kind words. You and others were of course an inspiration and of great support when our spirits were broken. You have no idea of how delighted we were and beyond words your enthusiastic support revived our spirits, gave us strength to continue...how much faith we now have in humankind. 1) As for our next adventures: Sharon wants to dig South America when we heard the incredible stories of a couple that ventured down south in their "old" VW bus. 2) Then I would like to take the Missus to Newfoundland and beyond(Labrador) whose soil she has yet to touch. 3) Then again I would like to do the TAT(Trans America Trail) with my fellow 60's + deafies...from Jellico, TN>the surfs of Oregon? All trails; gravel; mud; river crossings; snow...desert.., eh Any suggestions??
