I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.  The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.  I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.  I shall use my time.  Jack London

Brian and Caryl wish to dedicate their summer 2005 hike along the Pacific Crest Trail to the memory of Eric Johnson.  Carylís cousin had a passion for the outdoors and for hiking.  This led him to move to some of the remotest regions of Alaska.  Here he was able to practice his chosen profession of assisting the native people with legal issues and participate in the great outdoor activities he so enjoyed.  Eric left us quite suddenly and far too young on May 6, 2005.

We'd like to thank my father, Charles Johnson, whose diligent mail forwarding and other logistical support make this journey far easier than it could be otherwise.
