In the early 1960's, Bob and I were room-mates at ASU. We had some great times. Of course we were much younger then!
I am now 70 years old and living in Montana. In 1961, Bob, Ken Lajudice, Mike Barrick and I took a long hike into the Superstition Mountains spending several days in a quest for knowledge related to the Lost Dutchman Mine.
During the early 70's I decided to write down what we experienced during that trip thinking that some day, someone might be interested in our story—a story about four invincible 20-somethings with more energy than brains!
Somewhere along the line the manuscript was packed away and forgotten until, several years later, I mentioned the adventure to my sons. For several years after hearing the story they kept pressing me to print my recollections of the adventure. I am finally going to do just that. It will be published sometime this spring. A great time was had by all on our foray into the wilderness and I hope Bob, wherever he is, has been looking over my shoulder as I toiled away at finishing the project after all these years. And, I hope he is smiling to himself as he recalls our great adventure.
See you somewhere up the trail my friend. Perhaps just a little north of Weavers Needle.
