Back Again

Replaced the broken footage counter on my measuring wheel and made another trip to Daddys Creek, this time with two wheels, Caroline Woerner's and mine. Caroline recorded a trail length of 39516 feet or 7.48 miles. I recorded 39605 feet or 7.5 miles. Looks like the problem with my previous measurement of the southern end of Daddys Creek was that the footage counter was occasionally skipping a count. It wasn't noticeable until the counter failed completely.

Daddys Creek Again

Had bad luck today. Made a special trip to Crab Orchard with plans to measure Daddys Creek trail for the second time. About two miles in, the footage counter on my measuring wheel broke. We completed the hike but without measurements. I'll get my wheel repaired and do it again.
