It was a great walk. There is only one thing that could have made the walk better but that’s okay. The sun stayed behind the clouds for the entire walk. No sun! No heat! No sweating! My iPhone app told me we walked about 4 miles. We were done in under three hours, including a stop for water, fruit, and cookies.
Owsley wasn’t busted for LSD in 1961.
Stupid typo. Thanks. Fixed it – February 21, 19656.
