      Your comments about Pilot are noted, Dennis.

      A shame since from Interstate-80 Pilot looks SO impressive.

      Edward Earl and myself are planning to be there in mid-September -

      107+ miles and 44,000+ feet sounds like climbing Denali TWICE
      with round-trips from the very base such as with the Wonder Lake approach.
