Re: Sigurd, Grandfather, and Thoreau

I am going to pencil that in. It has been hard to get away with work, wife and the kiddies. Perhaps we can communicate via email on this? I would love to get out there and I hope the trees wil have dropped the leaves so I can see the those pines unobstructed.

Re: Chernobyl's de facto Wilderness Area

You wouldn't want to eat the fish caught at Bikini Atoll. They remain highly suspect from radiation. Some of the former tenants want to return because the fishing there is so good.
