We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
About 50% humidity, and soaked with sweat. SE US humidity is tough but in shape and so didn't restrict me when I lived in GA and FL. -- I did not see anyone over mid-40s on this hike. I'm 71, and took a few 30-second deep breath rest stops (longer and muscles bind up).
