I led a 9.5 mile bushwhack on the Lonkto Hollow Ridge in Allegany State Park this weekend. A great day for the hammock and the kilt.

Today I got steroids injected into the left hip. It feels much better. I think I'll get the right injected as well.

Where I tend to bushwhack I definitely wouldn't consider wearing a kilt. Now I have a vision of a cane of M.F. rose catching, um, something under there. Not pleasant.

Well, when I "bushwhack" I avoid heavy brush no matter what I'm wearing.  I'm not plowing through a field of thorn bushes, rose or berry - even if dressed in suit of armor.  I tell the groups I lead that they have to expect a planned bushwhack route to be 10 to 20 percent longer than expected because we go around obstacles like thorn bush fields and thick blowdown.

In laying out trail on private property in the outer realms of PA and NY often the landowner if willing indicates we are to follow property lines. One I recall intensely is where his grandpa must have been an early adopter of the multiflora rose fence concept as soon as the conservation folks told him about it in 1952 or so. Not much choice for us a couple of times to bushwhack that before the trail crew came in. Ouch.

The MF acronym doesn't stand for "multiflora" to bushwhackers, surveyors, wetland delineators, etc. I hate the stuff. Once got tangled in it like a helpless scarecrow.
