Nice day

I went out to Owen-Putnam State Forest this afternoon. Hadn't been there in years and years. There's a lot out there, though. Enough for a really good backpacking shakedown in the spring.

Went to the Fall Festival this evening to see how the Scouts were doing. Alles in Ordnung ist. I noticed that we've had a complete turnover of boys and leaders since I've been here. Good to see. Kids grow up, new folks become old hands, the magic is passed on.
