Deer Wake-up Call

7 pax showed up for some hillwork, fellowship and fun.

The Thang:

4 of us ran the 6 miles through the woods and around the mile loop that included a rather large hill.

The other 3 did 4 miles around the same loop.

Headlights were flashing everywhere.

Naked Moleskin:

With the cool weather, the insects and spiders disappeared, but we did spot 2 deer, 2 bunnies, and smelled a skunk.

One deer we actually woke up from his cozy leafbed. He must have been up late partying as it took 3 loops for fear to actually overcome pure laziness and for him to actually drag himself out of his personal farthole and scamper on into the day. Next time we’ll sick the bunnies on him.

Welcome to the Devil’s Turn to Bird Hole (Charlotte South FNG) and Bugeater (DT FNG). Good to have you aboard. Hope you enjoyed the variety and soft path the McAlpine Trail provides. Add in the dark night, and it is a great way to vary a monotonous distance.

One more Hill Week next week. If your quads weren’t burning, you weren’t there.

Big ups to Bugeater for running fellowship on the 4 miler. This F3lla was kind enough to use his headlamp to illuminate the roots for me while he tripped on ’em instead. Hope your toe feels better, brother!

Thanks as always to the Qs for leading us in the gloom…
