Hello to Everyone,
Collin and I made it home safe and sound. We were delayed on our flight home. We spent 5 hours at the Charlotte airport waiting for our plane. It seems that there were weather problems all over the East. It will take us a few days to catch up on our sleep! I must say, we are definately having "MOHICAN WITHDRAWALS"! Anyone else????
We had a beautiful time. I wish we could have spent more time
communicating with everyone, but time didn't allow it and we had to much to do in such a short amount of time. Thank you so much, RICH and ElAINE, for putting this together for us! You have created a beautiful family of new friends from all over the world! Isn't it amazing when you think about it? We all met over the internet. Also, our thanks go to all of the other people who helped make this gathering such a warm and harmonious experience! My great thanks to MARK ZENTNER for helping Summer down the slippery rocks in the pouring rain. That was so sweet! Also, many thanks to VINCENT for helping Summer up and down the trails during the most intense hiking moments!
A special thanks to CLAIRBERT for blazing a new trail so that we wouldn't get stung by hornets! What a saviour! We loved learning about the different herbs on the trail and how they were used by the indigenous peoples. All of his knowledge, which he gave so freely, really added a greater depth to our experience!
We loved our day at the Biltmore. It was refreshing to have a mellow day in the middle of the hiking. What an exquisite place! We sat down on the veranda and looked for miles and miles into the great beauty of North Carolina. The view reminded me of the clarity and beauty of the distant views of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
It was nice to meet and connect with DANA S. Thanks, Dana for introducing yourself to me. I am so glad I was able to introduce you to Walela. Thank you for sharing your "Walela" experience with me on Sunday evening. ROZ, I hope you made it home o.k. and that all is well with the car situation. It was lovely to meet you.
To all of the people whose names I did not mention, thank you all for being there and making this wonderful event even more beautiful!!
CAITLIN, in case you read this post, I wanted to give you a hug goodbye, but by the time we were ready to leave, you were no where in site. Summer sends a greeting to SARA and MARK, as she did not get a chance to say goodbye.
ELAINE, thank you for bringing your new little sweetheart to the gathering! It was precious to experience a new 3 day old baby. You are a great match for any of the strong women of the frontier!!!!
