Luddite Hike

A stroll through the woods - unplugged.

No phone, no GPS, no pedometer. No technological gizmos of any kind.

We'll have lunch at the top of the big hill.

8.3 miles - Croom "A" Loop

    A truly splendid day with good friends and our stellar leader and Druid trail beacon, Elizabeth. Thank you again for a brief but satisfying jaunt through the rolling knolls of the Croom forest. It was good to see familiar faces and some new adventure family members. Of course the day was not lacking in early subtle drama. As I hiked just in front of Bud on the trail I was met with a "Fred Flintstone" sized pine cone which fell from what appeared to be about a 75 foot drop. At a decent of approximately 32 ft/sec2 (insert comment: what a physics geek!) this pine cone cane within a millimeter if my left ear as it whizzed down in a fashion more meteor like than protective seed receptacle. Perhaps an angry squirrel? Perhaps my trail mate Bud behind me egged on the furry cone slinger? We shall never know....
