As summer continues, the smokey air finally cleared in the Vancouver area allowing us to breathe easier, especially us older treasure hunters with lung damage. Some fool kid smoked for a dozen years, then spent twenty-five years breathing animal dander and alfalfa dust during his years in agricultural paradise. But I feel there is enough good health for one more treasure hunting adventure and I will use it wisely.
With good luck and a sharp mental focus, I’ll return to the forest and finish what I began more than five years ago. Hopefully cooler weather will prevail and my target area will remain free of the devastating fires still rampaging across central BC. Meanwhile, I continue to write and edit, trying to create the best read that I can.
