One of the great things about this news- and word-delivering format is the community aspect, i.e. you, fair readers, and these “threads” which are designed to give you your say.

The (fully vaccinated, praise be!)

Ask a question, tip me off to nefarious activities on the public lands, or just send me to an interesting place.

If it’s too sensitive to put out there to the whole group, go ahead and email me at

But before you do that, make sure you catch up on your Land Desk reading (which, I know, is hard to keep up with, thus these ketchup, er, catch-up, days.) If you haven’t, please check out:
