following command to LISTSERV@tcu.edu:
GET SCOUTS-L HIGH-ADV SCOUTS-L

high-adv.doc The high adventure directory in Word format
high-adv.txt The high adventure directory in text format
high-idx.xls The index to the directory in Excel format
high-idx.csv The index to the directory in comma separated format

Life has been very busy this last year and I have not had time to update

list and I am collecting information for the next update.
