Mark, what an amazing channel through which to share your immense gifts of writing and photography! Loved the look and feel of the digital magazine. Very snazzy. The trip report was delightful as always.

I am certain that I'm not the only one who expects to one day see our friend Mark writing columns for the pages of globally distributed magazines. Keep up the good work, and thanks for always remembering the ole' folks at home back in Kentucky!
