Hiker Talk

This segment of the Gazette, allows members to respond with a simple one word/one sentence answer to a question which they are presented. Answers should be accompanied with a headshot photo - a mug shot will do in a pinch... If you have a burning question you would like to put out to the hiking community, please send it to:


Today's question:  "What aspect of being outdoors or hiking are you still afraid of?"  


Jan "Pooh-Bear" Barlow:  Leaving the trail and going back to reality.

Todd Blackley:  Weather

Linda "Blue Butterfly" Bakkar:  Hitching to town.  

Felicia "Princess of Darkness" Hermosillo: Grizzlies

      I got a ride into Burlington, Vermont and he didn't let me out until out of town and apologized saying, "I thought you said, 'Binghamton, New York .'" But his life story on the way to Burlington was real horror show to set up the gag.
