I met Mary & David Macaree when I was hiking Mount Thurston once. It was the red toque of his that I recognised.

I've always wondered if they hire people to to some of the updated trail reports or not ?

My BIL still asks if we were the ones he gave an old hiking guide to years ago. Lesson to be learned - Don't toss out anything as there may be a trail in an old book you may want to do some day.

I do a lot of shopping at used book stores for books. I have never minded if they were the *old* ones as they just might have something in them that the new ones don't. Lots cheaper too!!

I generally go to one or two stores. At one,when paying for the books, I find they always add up to as much as I have in my pocket. Sometimes have to run to the ashtray for change. The lady really sees me coming.

My oldest, Mining in the Pacific Northwest, was one I used to get from the library in the 60's. Can't check it out anymore so I bought one on the net. Looked for over 2 years and was rather spendy but I wanted it reeeealy bad. When I got it, it was like new to the point that I don't think it was ever opened. Now my prized possession. Is a 1967 reprint of 1897. Even covers BC mines. Awesome book.

Keep them books. The grandkids may find interest someday and you will have stories to tell.

Another guy I know talks with Jack Bryceland (5th Ed 103 Hikes). Apparently he's part of the same Chilliwack outdoor club. From what I understand, they get alot of "input" from others as to what to include in the edition. Also get some input into some of the new ones from other members.
