  1. We def­i­nite­ly will miss you, but so under­stand what you are doing trav­el­ing in our lit­tle 23′ RV across the US, north to Alas­ka and across Cana­da to Nova Sco­tia and Prince Edward Island. We always won­dered how you could keep the San Juan Update up and running.

    Hap­py New Year! Thank you so much for all your hard work. We wish you a hap­py life and safe travels.

  4. Our loss is the coun­try’s gain. Many thanks for your last­ing efforts on the Update and San Juan Island Trails and the Old Mil­i­tary Road Trail. We will miss you and hope to keep con­nect­ing, whether you and Shan­non are near or far. Hap­py and healthy adventuring!
