2020=much suffering, pain and loss.

I keep wondering, where is everyone going, and is it to a better place?

I have to say that if your spiritual beliefs are correct, then yes. Otherwise, no.

"correct" ??

My impression is that the administrators of this site have asked us all to refrain from posting divisive comments. Politics, religion.

I didn't read it the same way.  More like "if you believe X, and X is true, then Y".  IOW, a simple logical proposition, devoid of claims about what the "correct" belief is.  I can see how it could be parsed differently, but don't think that was the intent.

My post had nothing to do with religion.

Well the real crux of the posting terms is: "If it's divisive or highly contentious and not outdoor related it's pseudo-politics and off limits at NWHikers."  I see nothing devisive here.  Though a philisophical non-hiking focused discussion might fit better in the Saloon.

Fight!  Fight!  Fight!

The rains haven't even started yet.  I'm looking at sunshine out the window.  Everybody needs to go hit the trail.  Bring a map and compass with you, bring GPS too in case you can't see any landmarks.  Don't forget insulation!

The rains have started today here in Verlot although just a mist so far. Luckily my son and I had a good day fishing yesterday in a mountain lake.
