Fun to remember the whole thing even for those of us on the periphery.

I loved reading the story and I loved being a small (very small) part of it. Amazing what one person can motivate others to do!

Beautifully written, Peter, and deeply moving.

With my memory slowly fading away, there's good motivation to write things down. I don't have the patience or the talent to write longer stuff, but I really enjoy composing short vignettes, usually of some little bit of my life that had some meaning and that I want to remember. This was certainly one of those.

These days, when I'm no longer orienteering, I figure my log holds little of interest. It's a surprise to see that others still read it. And a really really nice surprise that it might give some pleasure.

I'd guess you still have one of the most widely read logs on this website. You're still ranked #1 on log hits, although you've banked an enormous lead.

You have not been forgotten. Far from it!

I love your bird photos.

Always an interesting read, even if you're not orienteering anymore.

I still miss the crypt.

Funny enough, I was thinking about the crypt just yesterday. The crypt -- the full name being Tales from the Tax Crypt -- went private when I decided that, even though the stories never identified anyone, I was a little uncomfortable with them being public.

But yesterday I thought, well, you've been retired for quite a while now, so maybe it's time to resurrect a few of them. Because there were some tales that I thought were pretty good. And it would bring back some good memories.

So maybe one of these days....

Still follow your log and enjoy some of the lengthier comments (and miss the crypt like Neil).
