Fourteen miles with very few issues, and that was with carrying all my water on my back. I took 160 ounces and only drank 80. Speed averaged 2.6 miles per hour so I am still walking slower than dirt.
A few pictures:
There would have been more pictures except I failed to check the SD card in the camera. I had an SD card in the back-up camera so I moved it to the one I was carrying.
|Somebody was playing the carillion as I trudged up-hill into downtown Vermontville. I recognized one of the melodies. A very nice way to start the walk.|
|"Drive like your KIDS live here."|
|This church is in the middle of nowhere.|
|Still obsessing about water. This pond is on the other side of the road from a gravel pit so I think it is the result of that activity. I bet it is filed with bullheads.|
|Lots of little cricks|
|This is where I took a water break. It is the student parking lot at an Amish grade school, the brick building in the background. I-S-Y-N.|
|Jet contrails. I am curious about the "feathering" to the left of the larger contrails. They almost look like the feathering on an English Setter's legs.|
|I saw less than the usual amount of litter. One piece I did see was this table. Curiously, the panels are not slate or marble, they are granite that has been finished as faux slate.|
|According to the label on the back, it was manufactured 1/11/2012 so it was not very old before somebody got tired of it.|
