(posting on behalf of of ‘tator co-editor Miles Howard)
The spring edition of the Resuscitator is taking shape and this is a friendly reminder that submissions for the next issue are due on April 15th. Please send along any stories, jokes, drawings, job searches or offers, housing needs, gear for sale, you name it.
Also, in case anyone is yearning to write something but looking for inspiration, here are a couple timely themes that we’d love to explore within the next issue of the Tator…
– Backcountry visitation has soared during the Covid pandemic. What have you experienced outdoors over this past year and how do you feel about the “Hiking Renaissance” we’re in?
– A reckoning with racial inequity and white supremacy in America is now underway. What are some ways in which these afflictions show up in the huts, and what is the path to change?
– 2020 was a historically lonely year for many of us, but the huts do offer a less dire version of social distancing for those who run them. What hut memories has social distancing channeled?
Thanks, folks! Send anything you have to email@example.com
Kim, I’m still not in contact with Miles. Do you have his phone number? If you forward this to Miles, tell him that I was a bull cook at Pinkham in 1963 and a hutman in Lonesome in 1964. Last but not least, I did a lot of the 2020 fall ‘tator last year.
Hi, I’ve forwarded your message again. I’m also going to double check the tator email is forwarding to Miles and EB, as it should be.
