Here's the first 6 paragraphs of the story condensed. Block watch, multiple breakins, suspected illegal camp sites etc.
Went on a doodling ride today, wandering up and down side trails in the woods within a few miles of the neighborhood. Didn't find anything at all. If fact after a while I sort of stopped any serious looking. It was just a lot of fun to be out in the woods away from all on a georgeous weather day. Some of the trails petered out within a 100 yards and some turned out to be treasures to be explored more in the future. My average speed must have been zip point nothing but I didn't care.
I even found an old stone bridge abutment across a small river where the maps have no record of a road ever existing. I wonder if some old time farmer built it to get from field to field?
Great ride, best of the summer so far. Who needs aerobars or pacelines for this sort of doodling.
