JNEWS: Logan, Doug [MC1965] is a wanderer



Florida man, 75, takes 400-mile hike through Spain

Doug Logan, a Vietnam veteran with two bronze stars, who went on to promote concerts for the Rolling Stones, is lacing his boots and strapping on a ruck sack. Again.

SARASOTA — Doug Logan is a wanderer. Folks around here call him “the Siesta Key Guy” or the “unofficial mayor of Midnight Pass Road.” He’s out there every day. Sometimes with a hiking backpack stuffed with bags of kitty litter. Other times he’s wearing a Santa hat or a Halloween mask. It all depends.

Call him whatever you want. Don’t call him retired.

“Napoleon retired at Waterloo; he gave up and became a snowbird on the island of Elba. I don’t want to be the Napoleon of Siesta Key,” said Logan, 75, pushing through one of his last 10-mile hikes from his home on Siesta Key to a cafe on St. Armands Circle for a cappuccino and a chocolate macaron.

Logan’s been training for the last two and a half months. He’s preparing for something big.

On April 30, he’ll check his 30-pound backpack, hiking boots and a cutout photo of Chloe, his 2-year-old granddaughter, and board a plane for Lisbon, Portugal.

Logan’s not going to wander the Torre de Belém, stuff himself with Bacalhau à Brás or wash it down with a glass of Ginjinha.

*** and ***

Logan is a Vietnam survivor with two Bronze Stars, who went on to promote concerts for the likes of U2, Michael Jackson and the Rolling Stones, and then, for a time, book performances at the Van Wezel.

So why is the 75-year-old lacing up hiking boots and strapping on a rucksack to set off again?

“I’m at page 500 of a 600-page book,” said Logan. “The other attempts were to flip through the first 500 pages of my life.”

*** and ***

In 1964, during his senior year at Manhattan College, Logan was drafted into the military. Then, in 1966, came a year of lying in the mud with the 101st airborne, getting shot at in the mountains, jungles and rice paddies of central Vietnam.

In 1980, Logan married his wife, Ann. Son Carter came in 1982, then Phil two years later.

ADMINISTRIVIA: I’m creating a “Jasper” — alumni of manhattan college — wiki for articles


I am (again) creating a “Jasper” — alumni of manhattan college — wiki for articles about out alumni that don’t make the cut in wikipedia.

I’d like to use all the features that I find in Wikipedia.  I’m not sure that is exactly possible; I may have to copy over some of the templates they use. 

For example, I wrote a Wikipedia page about “John Fandel”, a manhattan college teacher who had some fame as a poet. It was rejected as “not noteworthy enough” despite having a “dead” reference on several pages.

So, I’d like to put it on my “Jasper Wiki”.

I tried once already on a mediawiki on BlueHost and within two weeks the site was destroyed by Chinese hackers.

The way I read the CIVIHOSTING offering, they will install and secure it for me if I subscribe. I can do the content and they make sure it’s safe.

Of course, it’ll be “small potatoes” in terms of usage but I’d am going to try again.

At some point in time, perhaps the manhattan college alumni office would like to take it over but that’s a long way off.  By using a well know platform, if and when Alma Mater decides to take it over it would be easy. 

Of course, this will die with me. 

But if we can get others to participate as content creators, perhaps we can make it into something.

I already have a lot of info on Jaspers in Jasper Jottings, so it should be “fun”.

As always your thoughts, contributions, and participation is welcome and invaluable.

Details to follow.

Outstanding idea, jottings is the best source of alumni information about who we are, what we do and how exhibit our Jasper traditions

Go for it, John

[JR: Thanks jasper wiki.com is up and I’m working on it now.]
