I've had several ideas for my next O project but I think I am settling on designing a HNY2017 course. I think it will be at Hickory Run, that I will put out streamers, that I will ask for park permission and that I will somehow turn it into a US Team fundraiser. This will involve a couple of trips to HR to plan the course and put out streamers, a trip to actually do the whole course, and then a trip or two to take down the streamers. A lot of driving but a lot of time in quality woods.

I'm slowly finding some solutions to my eye issues. I've been trying various antihistamines and have found a couple that significantly reduce the tearing and itching. I'm reluctant to take them long term though so not sure if this is a good solution.

hiking 55:45 [3] 2.73 mi (20:25 / mi) +94m 18:27 / mi

A quick hike around the meadow loop with Sandy after several hours feeding sticks, hedge trimmings, and other yard debris through my small wood chipper. It churned out enough mulch to cover the newly dug flower bed.

Hill repeats behind Valley Green.

Forgot to start my watch so picks up part way. About an extra mile and a bit more climb. Also, a big tree down across the trail close to the bottom of one the hills so I just turned around there instead of fighting my way over a few extra times.

Many mountain bikers out. Most were quite pleasant and shared the trail; two were obnoxious and we exchanged words.

A nice hike on a warm day.

A big tree was down across the trail with the slices cut out down in the creek. Hard to make out but already a nice stone statue is on one of them.
