(Have patience with the backstory stuff, it all ties together.)
From 1982 to 1984 I worked at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho. Because I lived in the employee dorms it was easy to make friends and meet people to hang out with. One of the cool things about living there was that we were surrounded by National Forests so a group of us took full advantage by going camping together as often as our work schedules allowed.
Three of the people I hung out with were Chris and Connie, twin sisters and part of the camping gang, and Jody.
