I returned Ward's trekking poles to him today, and we had a good conversation. He talked to his doctor, who thinks the problem is vaping. Ward was a 25-year one-or-two packs a day smoker. Switched to vaping four years ago. I don't know anything about vaping, but sounds like it took care of the nicotine problem, but may not be great for your lungs. He has no doubts about the need for a rescue, he feels he was not far short of a complete shut-down. He will be doing easier hikes for a while. Unfortunately, you are looking straight up at the Skyline route from his parking area!

Ed, the two pairs of poles that CatB and I rescued were a Blue REI and Red Black Diamond. They were quite attractive and looked in great shape! I described on a lost and found tag where they were found and to whom they belonged----namely Ed the Good Samaritan and the Rescued Hiker. The upper tram dude attached that slip of paper to the two sets of poles with rubber bands, and assured me that the lower tram L&F would take good care of them. I hope you ended up getting them. CatB took a pic of them with her cellphone if you want to check!

That was them, Dennis. Had to be, how else would two pairs of trekking poles be in the same place? Thanks for picking them up, carrying them out, and the care with which you arranged for their return. A little inconvenience when they passed through tram hands, but not much, and I was very happy to have them back.
