Thanks for the lead. It was a lot of fun working this one up. The trip actually started pre-dawn, and I was back at the car recovering by 8:30 AM. Just a pleasant walk in the country . . . :-)
A 3 km round trip hike for stealth.... now that's the way to do it! Too bad it wasn't a standing house full of antiques, but that's the fun of it. And look on the bright side... if you did that length of hike in the Niagara region, you'd have 40 ticks to go with the hawthorne impalement!
