Memories of High School:

Some good friends, but inn general not my favorite part of life. Hit berkeley with a huge sigh of relief.

Favorite teacher perhaps Miss Clayton, English and Latin
And fond memories of Coach Callan, who had patience with a thorough nerd

Anything else we should know?

After retirement freed up more time, I took up fly fishing. Now do weeklong solo backpack/fly fishing trips into Idaho wilderness areas 3 or 4 times per year. Also go to Northern Patagonia, to the little gaucho town of Junín de los Andes Jan and Feb each year for fly fishing and - now - for friends. It's rather a second home.

Cebe, Somewhere I started writing and then lost it. You seem to be the happy one on the mountain top. Probably because the world is nice from that vantage. From your profile I feel both of us are at a good time of our lives. I am sure we could share interesting stories but I am surprised at your feeling about Miramonte where i felt you had a better attitude there than you indicate. Not to get personnel, I just wanted to send you an comfortable hello and many happy days outdoors. Bruce Hilger
