    I stopped by the Wiley's today for the first time before hiking the stretch southward to County Road. Roy was there, though Marilyn was not. He was looking a bit frail, with what appeared to be four...

    It hurts to think of Gerry's ordeal. Saddened to hear what she went through and for how long and how close she was to getting rescued. Crying shame. Maybe the only good to come from it would be as a...
