Another enjoyable play.
A lot of ups & downs over hill & dale.
I scared a few birds on the way.

Another Ogitchida struck from my list. Ogitchida must have been watching me because just as I was signing the log book a sudden wind storm came up and frozen white pellets started to fall.
Great day for a walk in the forest on an open trail system.

Completed this Wherigo with my good friend Active by Nature after work. After a rainy day, it was good to see the sun shine through the clouds as we started the hike and the cartridge for this story.

I shared with my friend the story of Ernest Childers and we chatted about the brave hero's, both in the past and present who continue to fight for their countries. Thanks for the wonderful story.
