    What I found at 4 Peaks was the perfect combination of wilderness and a
    sense of security. My goal was isolation for a few days, but I didn't own
    any camping equipment, and frankly, I didn't have a clue where to camp where
    I would not be in any danger from wildlife, passersby or the law for
    tresspassing.....and I loathe those campgrounds full of RV's!
    Your accommodations were charming and I never had that "what did I get
    myself into???" feeling.
    Thanks again,
    Barbara

    Dear Martin,
    Thanks so much for your hospitality at New Camp.......that was really
    nice of you to play Milkman.....and you were right, the bisquits were
    delicious! Of course, I ate way too many!

    I wanted to say goodbye, but it looked as if you were either meditating
    or asleep, and either way I didn't want to disturb you. George,
    however, allowed me to indulge in some serious petting!

    By the way, Wednesday morning I hiked up Rattlesnake, and you were right
    about that, too. It was spectacular!

    I was amazed by the colors of the fungi in the forest, and I am
    attaching some of my favorite Fungus Fotos.

    Thanks again,
    Barbara Rocker

    Barbara--
    Thanks for your most welcome email.
    The photos are terrific! Have you more to share and maybe
    others of interest about your stay at New Camp? I would
    love to make a webpage for you. See examples of Guest Web
    pages at http://4peaks.com/fgstbndx.htm Some of your really
    fine photos would make a great addition and would be a nice
    memento of your visit. Please try and send some (8 more or
    so). What sort of camera were you using?
    I'm happy you liked the biscuits plus got to see the view
    from Rattlesnake. It's quite a sight!
    Come back next year. Discounts apply. See http://4peaks.com/fgift.htm
    Your milkman,
    Martin

    Hi Martin,
    Let's see. New camp was lovely, and I only have two suggestions:
    ~First would be screen doors. It was actually very dark inside, and
    being able to leave the doors open (without inviting unwanted flies)
    would have been excellent.
    ~Second would be to have had one of the shelves left empty so I had room
    for the books and supplies that I brought.
    All in all, I found it a very charming cabin, and I really enjoyed
    staying in it. I think, however, that next time I would want to go
    farther out....Wolf's Nest or Ridge Camp. I wasn't expecting my cabin
    to be so close to everything (the road, the roofers, etc.) my goal was
    isolation.
    I have lots more pictures, and I would be delighted to have a page at
    your site, but how large a format do you want them in? I took them in a
    6 meg format, but the ones I sent you were scaled down in Photoshop to
    fit an email. I was shooting in ISO 800 (to get that fast shutter
    speed) but I was not happy with the graininess of some of the
    photos.....back to the manual!
    Thanks again for your hospitality. I enjoyed my stay, and would
    certainly consider staying with you again.

    Barbara--
    I'm happy to hear from you and that you'll send
    more photos.
    The size you sent (656x492 pixels) are fine for
    email and of course for the webpage. If the
    photos are of plants I hope you'll identify them.
    Send lots please and include at least one of you
    and some of the camp. Thanks.
    Yes. Next visit do Wolf (or Ridge). That's really
    quiet. But I'll still bring milk or anything else
    if you need it.
    I like your suggestion about screen doors. I
    think one could work for the back door as the
    door can stay open against the bookcase. I'll see.
    Best wishes,
    Martin

    Hi Martin,
    Wow, reliving my few days through the web page made me want to run away
    from hot, humid Florida forever! You did a great job. Thanks. And
    thanks again for your hospitality.
