Moxham Does Not Disappoint ~ Jun 27, 2013

Journal entry by Kurt Wisell



In spite of an amateur Nostradamus in every weather nook and cranny all week long bellowing doom, gloom and flood, Thursday was a magnificent day for a Crooked Canes return to Moxham Mountain. Generally not intolerably hot, humid or buggy, the mostly sunny day was punctuated by one brief shower on the way back down and everyone secretly wished it was a little stronger and longer as it did feel pretty good. Anticipating a very hazy day, we were rewarded with relatively clear views of mountains both near and far. Not only was the weather just fine, we were treated to seeing three of our fellow members hiking once again after a period of absence. Sam, Peter and Ray, it sure was nice to have you back on the trail! Moxham, as most places do, has a bit of history. See the Moxham hike journal entry for December 13, 2012 as it is rather interesting. On this hike, as on most, there was news to catch up on and very erudite and interesting topics of discussion. A hike-long traveling discussion of the virtues, vagaries, variations and efficient techniques for operating microwave ovens stirred much interest and animated discussion among all and will surely be elaborated upon during future outings!

You see, significant efficiency is gained by pushing 1 twice, rather than 1 and 0..........
