I know you’ve gotten tons of e-mail over the years thanking you for your fantastic trips, but I can only add to them.

It’s probably hard for you to understand the depth of experience, knowledge, humor, intelligence, warmth and adventure you give to people, and I feel pretty inadequate to find the words to express it all.

Anyway, I’m on my way to getting ‘back in the saddle’ here to get my riding technique and muscles back in shape, and I’ll be in touch to talk about my trip next July.

Mary Jo says hi.
