2012, the Year Without a Winter. So let's continue on our journey, parking on Route 80 in Guilford and walking south along the Menunkatuck to Sullivan Drive. The boys are headed out to golf, so we coordinate and my car is spotted at the end of the route. By the way, this blog gives me the option of entering coordinates for each post, so I'll be entering the location of my starting point. You can see that at the end of the blog post, and click for directions or whatever.

|Checking my progress on the Droid|
I decided to check my progress on the Droid. This is handy. I have entered the approximate trail route and exact parking locations into a Google "My Maps" (or "My Places"). When I view the map, it shows my current location. At 1:30 I was just over halfway, although I had taken a couple lengthy detours along the way looking for boxes early on. Time to speed up -- it gets dark at 5:00 and I don't want to have to walk out using my headlamp.

|What is that?|
|Wish I had a horse to run across that|
