    Your legacy lives on Jim, haha.
    I didn't mention any names for fear of setting something like this off

    "Do we detect a note of bitterness Brian? "

    No, but here's some:

    Marty Basch asked me for some shots to put on the cover of the winter issue of Windswept. I was mildly disappointed when it arrived and I saw one of mine had not made it. Then there was all this hub-bub about National Geo, so I looked at the Windswept cover again, and sure enough, I had been bumped for, of all things, a Nat Geo photographer! Wow!

    Well, if I've got to be bumped, at least it was by one of the best!

    The story made the front page of the weekend edition of Conway Daily Sun. Anyone can download the PDF version of the entire weekend edition at this link:

    (Yes, it is hosted on the Laconia Daily Sun site)

    Was in the doctors waiting room this afternoon and the Feb National Geographic was on the table. First time I had seen the Mount Washington article in print. I was amazed at how much better it was than when I read it on the web site. I think the flow of the text and photos and the size of the photos made the difference. Definitely worth finding the print copy if you haven't seen it yet...
