Remember Don Viejo? Last May the 85-year old was posting flyers in the local mountains advertising for a lady hiker friend, with interviews to be conducted atop Mt. Baden-Powell.
Apparently there is still an opening, if your name is Deborah and you were hiking at Henniger Flats on New Years Day. Here’s his latest message:
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DON VIEJO,
TO A QUARTET OF BEAUTIFUL LADIES.
WE MET ON NEW YEARS DAY, JANUARY 1,2015,
AT THE HENNIGER FLATS HIKING TRAIL, ENTRY SIGN MONUMENT.
I TOOK YOUR PICTURE. YOUR NAMES WERE:
LADY WITH CAMERA
I TOLD THE STORY ABOUT THE “BOILED RAT”, AND A POEM.
“I HIKE FOR HEALTH AND PLEASURE.
I SEARCH NOT FOR GOLD OR GAIN.
I KNOW THAT I AM CRAZY,
BUT I’M GLAD, I’M NOT INSANE.”
I WOULD LIKE TO HIKE WITH DEBORAH, BUT DO NOT KNOW HER LAST NAME
THIS MESSAGE IS FLYING BLIND LIKE A SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSION.
MY EMAIL IS [email protected]
“QUE SERA, SERA,
WHAT EVER WILL BE, WILL BE.
THE FUTURE’S NOT OURS TO SEE,
QUE, SERA, SERA.”
Let’s see if we can give Don Viejo a hand and find the mystery lady-hiker named Deborah!
