In this modern age it is easy to lose touch with friends when they change their email address. That happened to me when I couldn’t find Tom and Lynda Galeski. No matter what I did. However, I had discovered some time ago that if I would wait awhile people will surface in unexpected places. Recently I was chatting with Vern and Idel at Dead Man’s Flat and while standing in their parking lot they greeted a young couple who had just come around the corner of a building. As soon as I heard the name Beau I knew it had to be Tom and Lynda’s son. Beau had been on my Chilkoot Trail hike with his parents in 2003. Subsequently Tom and Lynda and I reconnected and arranged to do a little hike in Bow Valley Provincial Park.
