Boone is lovely although the last time I was there it was in a snowstorm on the first days of Spring some years ago. My former student Dan Swenberg often goes up there for vacation to a cabin owned by his parents, I think. Have you ever been in touch with Gary Boye, who is, I think at the State University there?
