Wow, your attrition was even worse than ours (we went from 17 to 6, not counting the two dogs who couldn’t back out). We got very lucky with the weather on Wildcat – I’d also planned to leave early if we got much in the way of rain. Glad you got good traffic, even in the clouds.pedxingParticipantSeptember 13, 2013 at 8:03 pmPost count: 95pedxingParticipantSeptember 13, 2011 at 8:33 pmPost count: 95pedxingParticipantSeptember 13, 2011 at 1:11 pmPost count: 95in reply to: Looking for help with newspaper story about FOT48! #54916

Sounds great. While the focus remains on remembering 9/11/01 and all lost that day, I think those of us who have had to struggle to walk again or know people who are struggling have a special appreciation of what it means to be out in the mountains.
Your girlfriend’s struggle seems to be longer and harder than mine, but every once in a while being able to hike is a thrill in itself. Good luck to both of you. It seems as if she is giving the process an awesome amount of effort.pedxingParticipantMarch 15, 2008 at 10:06 pmPost count: 95
I’m planning to take one of the peaks with disabled access (Cannon, Washington, Wildcat D) and organize a group of Burn Survivors. A number of burn survivors – both hikers and non-hikers have expressed interest. We probably wouldn’t take Washington, since the auto-road and the cog cost a lot of money.
We’d like to do something to remember the firefighters who died on 9/11/08. Since learning how much this event meant to those who lost people on 9/11, this event has taken on extra significance to me. I hope to contact some people involved with fallen fire-fighters to help figure out what would make the best tribute.
I’m also looking for good ways to publciize this – as publicity will help show that the losses are remembered.pedxingParticipantNovember 13, 2007 at 5:22 pmPost count: 95
I agree. Believing “my country right or wrong” doesn’t mean you can’t say the leaders or the voters made the wrong decision – it just means you love it either way.
My answer was something like, “I don’t confuse the flag with the things that come wrapped in it. People use the flag to sell all kinds of things from hot dogs, to cars to wars. Just because someone uses it to sell something I’m not buying, won’t make me turn away from it.”
But just thinking about what the flag has meant to the brave men in the Hanoi Hilton is enough to make me happy to have the chance to fly it high and proud.
