Looking forward to 2013
If you read the last blog, you'll know that I tried to see what important issue I dealt with in 2012. Now what about this year?
I'm not much on resolutions since I don't feel I have to wait for January 1 to do something (try a new yoga class) or to stop doing something. Chocolate, anyone?
So I'm more interested in working with the non-profits I deal with than to navel gaze. What will happen this year that we really need to pay attention to? Two issues have to do with license plate tags. How could the piece of metal that you have on the back of your car be so important? Because it brings in money to the non-profit.
Make sure that Friends of the MST gets its 300 plates real soon.
Make sure that our North Carolina legislature does not ban the full color plates. What is the matter with them? Those of us with full-color plates should be able to keep them. Friends of the Smokies sells the North Caroilina plates and funds a lot of projects with that money.
The Appalachian Trail Conservancy will have its biennial conference in July, 2013 in Cullowhee. It will be the best conference yet. Save the date - July 19 to July 26, 2013.
I've been booked into several bookstores, outdoor stores and organization to present The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina. Is your business or club interested in learning about the MST?
