What is Chuck doing in 2014?

Chuck has "retired" from his many years of leading tours on the Applegate-Lassen Trail through northwestern Nevada and northeastern California. However, he might be persuaded to get out there again if very special conditions arose. More importantly, he is trying to get some of the people who have assisted him on tours over the years to do their own version of the tour.

For information about the tour he led, see the "Emigrant Experience Tours" web page.
