Dear Brian, (as per musings on May 3, 2005) I first camped at Riverside (across the river from your cabin) in 1969. I was 11 years old and my grandfather showed my mother the camp. I have been camping there every year since then, and for the last 33 years I have been feeling sorry for myself. I have been walking along the river looking longlingly at your cabin (and the others) wishing that I too owned a share of one of the cabins. Everyone in our family has voiced this sentiment at one time or another. Now my family is far flung and my sister who lives in Liberia, Africa said to me only last month..."don't you wish we owned a cabin up at the Metolius?" And feeling very sorry for myself, I agreed, as I planned this year's camp trip to our beloved Riverside. We too drag our lawn chairs to the river with various magazines and drinks. If I see you across the river this summer, I'll wave.

thank you for bringing a smile to my face and if you ever have a share of the cabin to sell, let us know.

All the best, Dr. Brook MacNamara
