super buggy Saturday. guess it's time to break out the head net again. been a cpl months since I tackled my nemesis hill, had to stop 1/2 way up. it's been even longer since I did it 3 times on the same ride w/ no stops

did not pass any turtles on the trails. the only snake I saw was squished on a paved road at the entrance. but I did pick up this hitch hiker, possibly in the tall grass, in the field, at the beginning of the ride. felt him crawling on my leg when I was taking my footwear off. I did make periodic tick-checks but he may have been camo'd in with my socks & sandals? I still had a nice layer of insect repellent on my body so he had not yet found a tasty spot to bite

took a walk w/ Wifey in the rain yesterday, partially on the bike trail, thru the corridor. the baby geese are too big to ride the backs of their parents now
