Why “theArchie”?

Archie was my best friend for many years. He got me through a lot of dark times. I can’t say that a blog will do the same thing, but in honor of the fun times he and I had, I’m hoping the pointless & aimless wanderings on this blog prove out to be as fun as the pointless & aimless walks and hikes he and I took together over many years. Mountains, creeks, rivers, summits … highs and lows, he and I went through it all together, leaning on each other as needed.
