Greetings Tom_H

That is so great. Reading those books must be a source of inspiration that is with you to this day. If we could get kids these days to read Muir's work, the world would be a better place.

But then, that's nothin'. When I go up in the mountains, I pack in hardcover editions of the Odyssey and the Iliad, and read them in the original Greek. And then...well okay, that's not really true. Norman Clyde did that. Not me.

But I read the Cliff Notes!

Its not a book but I like bringing a New Yorker magazine and now that its online, I can take as many issue as I want on the Smart Phone. That little device has been real handy in making those long nights cozier. In years past, I also liked bringing some Jack London to stay grounded in the wilderness and read about journeys where everything that can go wrong, does.
