    Hey, Bill!

    Hope you had a nice birthday. The video of Parque Nacional Cajas is absolutely breathtaking. What a raw, wild, gorgeous, (but relatively inhospitable) landscape.

    I'm sure that if I trained really hard, that I could make the first 585 vertical feet of the 14,585 ft. climb to Cerro Arquitectos. You sure picked an amazing venue for a birthday party.

    Good health and long life to you! Happy Birthday, brother!

    We have 5 dogs Bill, 4 labs and a pug. 2 of the labs are 15 yrs plus. When you say total unconditional love, I'd say the pups have mastered this. What a perfect picture for a perfect day sir. Hope you both enjoyed the cheesecake on the mountain.

    There are two great days in a person’s life — the day we are born and the day we discover why. Today is not the end of another year, but the start of a new one. May you have all the love your heart can hold, all the happiness a day can bring, and all the blessings a life can unfold. I hope that you continue to change the lives of others with your positivity, love, and beautiful spirit.

    Happy birthday Bill and warmest wishes to you on your very special day.

    Happy birthday, Bill. And enjoy Mara for many years. I know how unconditional love could they give (I have 4 poodles). I would like to thank you for PA. It really has changed my life together with Project Camelot. So double thank for that.

    Happy Birthday Bill, and thank you for creating, maintaining and shepherding the Avalon Forum!

    I am grateful for the community it has provided me, and though I have not been very active for a while, it is always a joy to come back, read, learn, and make connections. Thank you for giving us all the opportunity to do so!
