        • This is true, but…using the words of a fellow hiker from this summer’s trek up to the saddle of Twin Peaks…”you can’t see a trail, but you will know where to go….”

          • Perhaps . . . plus, there’s always an abundance of people who seem beyond willing to tell me where to go.

          • Beyond willing…? Damn people….

          • Poor choice of words . . . I should have said ecstatic to tell me where to go.
