How to not have a good time on a otherwise perfectly enjoyable hike

1. Arrive at the same time as a girl scout troop. Stand around studying the trail map as you wait to learn which direction they are headed.

2. Forget the extra roll of film.
2a. Be on frame #23 in your camera.

3. Convince yourself you left the coffee on. Seriously consider whether you should drive back to check.
(you didn't. either one)

4. Estimate how long you can spend in the woods before the house burns down. Whether the house actually will burn down. Whether the ADT payment should be put to good use for something.

5. Realize you have discovered this awesome first rate best ever trail system on probably the last perfect weekend of the year.

The red is what I walked today. The foliage is getting good -- it ain't the apples you move to central Mass for.

    The Chapman Trail will not lead you wrong. Although, Girl Scouts are good to have around when you are in need of cookies during your hike.
