  14. Everyone else has said it all. I agree that the level of enthusiasm is tops, and the patience with a down-to-earth practicality has seen me through on being on time at the gates. I appreciate being able to work with you in Agua Chinon as well as Bommer Canyon and HHR as you instill your love and enthusiasm for the land and all that it supports to those who come out. They come back again because of how and what you impart what it means to you. The idea of another way to demonstrate distance between the planets was great! Congrats!
