Road running 48:00  4.0 mi (12:00 / mi) +115m 11:01 / mi
BMS/BHS loop, spitting snow. Still some on the ground. Hay Creek & Letchworth maps for company. Screwed up T/D in turning 305 off.
Came home from rounds this am & got stuck for a bit in driveway, maybe 3” fluffy snow making it wintry pretty & slippery. No teeth in it though being nearly April.
Found an Elk Neck SP map earlier, stamped day 2, Sunday, 3/29/98, so 17 years ago now. Recall the day before (today). We drove 10 hours to the meet site by NYC, Phily, Wilmington, got out of the car to a chorus of spring peepers: died & gone to heaven kind of thing. That Saturday night it was 70F at the tent site (“stars thru tree branch canopy as in winter”), got to 80F during day (“hot SW wind that got up by noon”). ENSP was a new map & enjoyable on that first visit. Recall less so subsequently, more briars & blood noted, post honeymoon I suppose. Dinner on several occasions in the nearby town of North East. Some nice moments on the Chesapeake, then the long drive home. Back 3/31/01 and 3/16/02, the latter apparently just for spring fun (note about surprise daffodils in the woods), a DC cherry blossom look-see followed by Harriman’s Tiorati, Kanawukee and Sebago Beach for O in snow (“grey, chilly, weak sun”). Think twice about such long drives now - Beth still a trooper for it. Partly cost of gas a factor but a distance inertia, too.
