Subject: RE: John Dwyer - Songs&Stories

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm trying to catch up with shopping and life in general after finishing a seminar paper for class last week (graduate school, philosophy dept., environmental ethics in particular).

I was at San Juan Island NHP in the summer of 1985. It isn't a big park, and when I was there I think there were four or five seasonal interpretive rangers, two of them women. I imagine the staffing has remained about the same level, but the seasonal rangers are just that--seasonal--and we have wanderlust in our hearts. I worked all over the U.S. before getting married and having kids stopped me for a while. (Unfortunately, it stopped me in Texas, not in Washington! I'll get out of here one of these days. The summers here are killers).

I'm pleased to see that Bob and you and Don are back in contact again. Now maybe you'll go ahead and sign up and be something other than "GUEST,GUEST,Mike Nelson"! And perhaps you three will expand on the stories of the good old days for the rest of us on the list?
