GRETA THE GHOST

T he Moon "Tennessee Handbook"(available by calling 1-800-345-5473) by Jeff Bradley has been a constant companion for the last several weeks. Recently, taking tips from the book, I made a trip with some friends to Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, to eat at the famous Donoho Hotel. "With its long, colonnaded porches on the first and second floors, is the very picture of a Southern resort hotel. Built in 1914, it has 59 room."

"The hotel also has Greta, described as a ghost or an angel who is sometimes seen in the dining room," says the handbook. Now, I didn't see Greta. The cook told us stories of Greta humming and making her chocolate malts unexpectedly. It was an interesting evening. The four of us were the only ones there besides the cook (and Greta?). But the results of that meal are interesting. Since leaving I now have a new job and the other male person with me has been named Chief Financial Officer of his company. Did Greta have anything to do with this?


TIDBITS

Jeff Johnson and the Outofbounds crew have six months to go on there around the world journey.

Falcon Guides has a new guide which they call "the premier outdoor recreation planning guide on the web."

Evelyn Kaye sent a copy of her book, Amazing Traveler Isabella Bird. A terrific read! Isabella Kaye was a victorian adventurer who ended up travelling around the world when it was not fashionable for women to do so. "I am doing what a woman can hardly do - leading a life fit for a man," said Isabella Bird in 1873. You can contact Evelyn Kaye by e-mail at ekaye@ibm.net. It is published by Blue Panda Publications, 3031 Fifth Street, Boulder, CO 80304-2501. Cost is $19.95.

MainTour Wyoming has reviews and profiles on area attractions. Included are special up dated features on Adventure Travel opportunities for both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
