I went into work, and was then set free early . Behind my shop is the largest expanse of " water shed area". There are no " woods" in CT.  I stopped by a newly discovered stream. I took my boots off and about a thousand minnows are pedicuring my feet.
I saw a special on the discovery channel, it involved burn victims and their rehabilitation for thousands of dollars a day.  Here I am,
If I never had to walk indoors again?  Would not,
And who made the decision ok Mosquitos

My Brother-In-Law is from CT and he used to come up and go snowmobiling. Sadly he said snowmobiling in CT meant a one way trip that was MAYBE 20 miles long which is why he came to Maine, we have more sanctioned groomed miles of snowmobile trails then we do state highways! Now that is the way life should be.

As for my own farm, I often go hiking. I have always had a thing for "roads", put in quotations because they can mean various things to various people. I do have some major gravel roads as haul roads for 100,000 pound logging trucks, but most are simple logging tote roads...read here...earth roads that are just void of stumps that you can drive a pick up or SUV through the woods if you do not altogether care much about it. These make great hiking trails because the brush is gone and are wide enough so you do not get slapped in the face with brush. On some days I will take my camera and go for early morning hikes when the light is the best and capture stunning images. Okay sometimes; not a lot as I am not a great photographer, nor have a great camera.

I have often thought about building a cabin and renting it out for people who might like to experience a WOFATI before building one themselves, and of course just hiking out in the woods here in Maine. You know what it is like Larry and don't live too far away; mellow hikes in the woods, or even going to a few tourists spots to get the best of both worlds on a vacation. As for people getting a pedicure, my servitude to them would only be in being a good host and probably not give proper pedicures. The good thing about having well maintained trails is that people can walk barefoot down them. I am not a barefoot kind of person, but for those that are, no minnows needed.
