    Michael, I know you're pretty fast, so if you can show me the exact route you take, you can breeze on ahead if wish.

      Maybe I'd be faster if I had a dog to chase on the trails. It was nice meeting Bud and seeing a good dog get a good home !

    Michael, I hate to miss this Saturday's hike but have appointments and the hike wouldn't allow me to get back in time.

    Enjoy!
