|Plus, the backcheck was only about halfway up the very long hill..|
Although the funnier bit, arguably, was Air Horn beginning the brief with the announcement, "We ran into a few problems on the trail." Specifically he, setting eagle, and PhR, setting turkey, ran into someone else's marks: a whole bunch of floury arrows pointing some other people some other way through the Great Falls woods around Riverbend. Luckily, the outlaw arrows had no cross-hatches, and were not paired with any kind of checks or other deviousnesses, so the hares wrote "GFH3" at frequent intervals on their overlapping trails and hoped for the best.
Another funny bit, actually, was when A.H. said turkey trail was about five miles. Ha ha ha! Eagles had a true trail of about six and a half, although Knipple Knocker reported 7.9 miles on his GPS. Devon probably got more, as between outlaw arrows and Malaysian jetlag, she meandered a long way off trail and didn't make it On In until the search party was forming.
|And Spurt is running again! Welcome back!|
The Associate Mufti was enjoying a Nationals win, and the Mufti was... Anyone know where the Mufti was? Anyway, the roll showed up, so the Assistant Associate Mufti called 34 names (several people showed up late to eat and drink and camaraderie), with no birthdays or double numbers or other excitement. Nonetheless, everyone in the photos looks pretty happy.
