Hi Bob,

Thanks for chiming in...Here are a couple of answers/comments to your responses.

25. I got altitude sickness while hiking 60 miles in five days. I didn't eat for almost two days.

20. I was hiking in a state park in California early one morning and saw a "white" deer from a distance. I later learned it was a white Mediterranean fallow deer that had been transplanted from Europe. For about four or five hours though I wasn't sure what I had seen.

1. If I ever make it to your neck of the woods Bob I will take you up on your offer. I have actually met a number of people I have become friends with in cyberspace...and...if you ever come to California please look me up or at least ask me about where to go. I know the state like the back of my hand.
