At the Eastern Rendezvous 'bout five years ago, the one in WV, we held the opening ceremonies in the eve. As all the jawing came to an end, candles were passed 'round to light for those comrades who had passed on and could not make another Rendezvous. Davey Gunn stood beside me and as the flame was passed from one to another, he nudged me and said, "there's Wade, haven't seen him since last year when he camped with us." Now Wade is a true longhunter and trekker, he is a blonde DDL, and we have known him for years. I nudged Davey Gunn back and said, " who's that with him, those couple of lads?". In shock, Davey replied, "It's Mark Baker and a couple of his followers." Sure, 'nuff 'twas. The flame continued to be passed, Wade nodded to us in recognition, passed his flame to MB, and MB commenced to light my candle, then Davey Gunn's. 'Twas an honor and a moment to savor.
