Jerry, thanks so much! That's a great report. I'll need to get some of our photos uploaded and write a little.

You guided us on a paddle that was unforgettable. It was a great tribute to Phil. It was wonderful to know that we stood, ate, and slept where he did, and that we saw some of the beauty he was able to experience.

Great Report Jerry. Thanks for making that trip happen and helping Amok's family and friends heal over the past year.

Thanks Jerry-what an amazing honor to Amok and an amazing gift you have given to his family.

I tip my cap to you my brother.

So very nice of you Jerry. Someday I will visit that site, even if for an hour or two. I am sure Phil's spirit is there, and it will touch those of us who visit. Thanks buddy.
