I may have ben talking about the really nice retirement party that Doug, Earlene, and the Portal staff put on for me seven years ago, or maybe some of my adventures when I did the entire JMT two years ago, but I always like talking to Doug and Earlene, have seen them every year for the past 16 years.
Though I may have a vision problem, I am not blind, not by any means. If I was, there is no way that I could have done Whitney 15 times, or completed the entire 221 mile John Muir Trail, the last 18 days by myself. A blind person could not navigate the Golden Staircase, the stream crossing at Evolution Meadow, or passes like Glen and Forester. I do not appreciate being called blind, even if the person things it is being done light-heartedly. Thank you.
