Farewell Roger

 On September 30th 02011 Long Now lost of one of our own, emeritus board member Roger Kennedy.  Roger came to Long Now while we were trying to find a Clock site back in 01998.  He jumped in immediately leading us on amazing road trips throughout the south west.  His knowledge of ancient America was beyond encyclopedic, and his joy of the high desert contagious.  Roger’s direct guidance led us to the limestone cliffs and ancient bristlecones of  Mt Washington near the Great Basin National Park, a site we eventually purchased.  Roger’s generosity and sage wisdom will be missed always. Farewell Roger.
