    Green Mountain Man passed in his sleep at Big Bald shelter in 1999.

    And the unfortunately named Phoenix died in 2006 - I think at Mt. Collins Shelter.

    I'll probably still show up, but I'll be the older coot reminiscing about Trail Days of my youth. And possibly Trail Days' from before my time.
