I have just realized, that despite ENTS having expanded beyond its New England origin, to the Eastern seaboard, to the East of the Mississippi, then to the fledgling western sibling WNTS, and to Europe, it's clear to me now that we've not been thinking big enough! I can see the time when we'll be considering the titling variation of the eNTS to the gNTS, to reflect the global nature of our eventual expansion.
Reading last week of trip reports in Mongolia, this week of a trip report in Russia, oh my!  It's a wide, wide, wide world that awaits us.  Have we yet a southern hemisphere trip report?

Don,

My idea on the eNTS Magazine was to have the  e reflect the e as in electronic, email, eBay, eetc.  as well as being a play on the original Eastern Native Tree Society name and of course the Tolkien reference.  Inside I proclaim it to be the Magazine of the Native Tree Society, a more globally encompassing name than the Eastern Native Tree Society.  I am not sure if anyone noticed, but that was my idea anyway.

I had noticed, and fully support your efforts! It's these last two faraway travels trip reports that have captured my fancy, and revived my wanderlust! Mongolian wolf scat, OMG! I can't say I've previously heard those three words used in concert before... Keep up the good work!
