This cache is more than 36 hours old and no FTF yet!? Well, I guess I will just need to see to it.
I set out today as soon as I was back from a meeting with a client in Shippensburg. I was dressed in business casual and decided that that would be just fine in the winter. I had no orange, but I doubted I would be mistaken for a goose in the woods since it is migratory bird season. Off I went, entering from the west. There was no way I was hitting this from the top. As it turned out, I liked this approach just fine. Stage one was in hand after limited bushwhacking and the rail bed was much nicer to walk on as I progressed to stage two. I tried to discern as I went whether anyone had come before me, but all signs indicated that I was the first person to tread the trail today. Good sign!
I finally made it to GZ and was pleased to see a blank log. I have not found one of those for a while. I really expected to see Fred or Bob & Jill there. PoleCat and TopCat too... I guess they had better things to do. Actually, so did I, but I am not very disciplined.
I managed to get back to my car with no major snags, tears or stains on my business casual beige khakis. Try that Bob!
Thanks for leading down the tracks!
