Apologies | High Sierra Topix  

Apologies

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Apologies

Postby maverick » Tue Jan 08, 2013 6:36 pm

Fellow HST Members,

Would like to apologies to those of you who felt as though you were treated
unfairly by the remarks made by me during my recruitment efforts for the
search for Larry, it was not my intent. Being under a time constraint and
needing to beat the weather I went into overdrive to round up as many
volunteers as possible to join in on the search effort of our fellow HST member.
I understood fully well that some of you had family and/or work obligations, and
that many of you did not have the experience to deal with the difficulties that
could be encountered during the search effort, if I made you feel uncomfortable
or pressured I'm sorry.
Would like to express my gratitude to all of those who gave their support
no matter how they cared to express it, either by well wishes, prayers, or search
idea's it was really all appreciated, even if at the timed it may have seemed as
though it was not.

Thanks,
Mav

Welcome back, Mav. I've been missing your photos. Thanks for all of your efforts on the S&R. I know it was frustrating.

Good to see you posting Mav!!! Like someone else said, sure missing your pics. No need for an apology mate, and thanks again for your efforts. Hope to be hearing more from you this winter.
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

Maverick,

Welcome back! No need to apologize about things that happen during very trying times.

I like you more than anyone else here. :) Hell! I named my son after you! :D

It's good to "see" you back! You have always made me feel welcomed as a newer member to HST. Your cross country route suggestions and photography advice are very much appreciated:).
