      I mean, WOW . . D-day glider pilot. You're talking about huge hutzpah all the way around. And, yes, I have so often heard people tell me any trail in the Grand Canyon is memorable, meaning well earned. The backcountry is especially this way, and the primitive bush whacking trails. . .well, let's just say, Good luck finding a route. (Hence, topo map and compass skills, a must). My respects to your pop for his service. (I was submarine service, myself, so all we had to worry about was Moby Dick ramming us. Or something.)

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
