thoughts while hiking the C&O

Hiking with PJ is like following a butterfly. He tends to bounce around on the side of the trail back and forth, as his imagination wanders. He starts and stops and starts again and looks at something. And asks a question -- and then he comes up with some random thought. Some video game he has been playing.   Or he's looking at  something and then asks a question about some odd thing.  What the difference is between pistols now and in the 15th century.   His brain races back and forth as we walk, cris-crossing itself.  It's all very tiring and entertaining than time.

You can't depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus.
