    I don't like to on-yer-left little kids when I pass them, because I'm afraid of spooking them. I always try to give them a wave or a thumbs-up as I pass though.

    Thankfully for me the company is buying the tickets. We've got club seats and food vouchers (I figure the $25 voucher should be good for about 2/3rds of a hot dog.)

    A couple of the stream crossings on the W&OD way out by Smiths Switch Station (Goose Creek?) have the faux-wood planks. I'm still a little cautious on them when it's wet. They're not...
