2019 STL#3: Barn Island WMA

4.5 miles; Stonington, CT I know I kind of swore off this place due to all the dogs, and then it turns up on this year’s Sky’s the Limit challenge. Thankfully, it wasn’t at all bad today. One loose dog who had zero interest in me… he just wanted to run, run, run, along with […]

2019 STL#2: Harkness Memorial SP

1.5 miles; Waterford, CT I have only been here once, at that was for the annual dinner of the Connecticut Forest and Park Association. So I didn’t really know what to expect. I dunno.

Day 1 27th N-S Trail Trek

12.1 miles; Charlestown and Richmond, RI I wasn’t sure until almost the last minute whether I’d do this again. I will miss Day 4 and Day 6 this year due to prior commitments. Alas, no completion patch for me this year… This hike was harder than I expected, even with the aggressive neighborhood walking I […]
