[Our son Jake] has been in San Francisco (living in Berkeley) for a few years, and has been at Sierra Club magazine where he's been able to work his way up to writer/assistant editor. This is his first cover story. He just returned from North Carolina for a story on his Appalachian trek with a blind hiker and he's currently en route to Borneo for a feature story on rain forest conservation.
It's not hard to trace the roots of his love of the outdoors. Our family could never thank you enough for all you did to instill in Jake his deep appreciation for all that....and to reward his passion and hard work. I never read his writing without thinking with fondness and gratitude of his time with RLT. You played a critical role in creating and validating his abilities and sensibilities as someone who has not just a love for the outdoors, but a unique ability to share it.
Thank you guys so much for seeing something in my son that you nurtured into a defining passion that has given us all such happiness and pride. –Terry A., parent
