Facebook is no longer blocked on USDA networks. Will you use it? Will you find professional purposes for it? Will that affect how (or how often) you use RecLink?

Hi John,

I do remember you.  We worked on the TYPE 1 team together around 2000.  You were our CTSP.  I was DMOB.  Good to hear from you.  The CNF is beautiful.  I love the Sky Islands with their diverse eco-regions.  Great partners on the Forest.
