Well, I’m back from the swamp but I have a rash of bites on my bum and back despite using 99% DEET. The swamp was wet and a few of the roads were flooded but we hiked for a mile before we couldn’t go any further and came back… It wasn’t as hot as it could be because we were there before 8.
We saw a hi-railer (truck that drives on the road and can lower railroad wheels and run on rails). It ran up to the crossing and got on the rails and then went off into the distance.
I got back and managed two clinics in the evening: JMRI operations and Tony Koester on scratch/kit bashing.
Bed early to get up at 5 for a trip on the Louisville & Nashville.
