I just read on a thread that we have not heard from cowchip recently because he was killed in a drowning accident? Did I read that right? I wish I had known at the time. That’s one of the difficulties of only knowing people by their board monikers. I might have heard/seen the news at the time, and never made the connection.
Yes, he was killed a couple of years ago in the Mon. Very sad. There is now a bench/marker with his name (Ronald Vahosky) on the Kennywood section of the GAP, in honor of the trail work in which he often volunteered in.
