This week we celebrate Thanksgiving in the USA, and we thought we'd take just a minute to mention some of the things we are grateful for:

Top among those are our apparent good health, and the fact that we have each other and continue to be in love after 38 years of marriage. We wish all of you the same.

We're also enormously grateful for the fact that we live in a place and time that allows us to enjoy the beauty of nature when and where we would like, with wonderful national parks, forests, and wilderness areas. And we should mention the many people who have joined us in our celebration of the wilderness, from those on these backpacking message forums, to those we have taken along on a hike . We thank you all

Great post, and I feel the same. The wife while no longer able to hike, still lives vicariously thought my pictures.
We live in one of the most incredible places on the planet and we should all be thankful it is at our doorstep.
I for one have enjoyed your adventures and have used them for inspiration for my hiking partner in crime to explore other areas.
Thanks for being here :mrgreen:

You guys that have been here for so long, giving of your time and sharing your experiences so selflessly and generously, deserve the gratitude of so many. You're the rocks that hold it all together. You motivate and inspire me to teach when I can and learn when I should. Thank you! I'm proud to have been allowed to become part of what you've created. Warmest wishes this Thanksgiving to you and yours.
