muddy field, but green ground cover   April Madness 2002
Rockwall, Texas

Perhaps the first day of this launch should have been called "April Mudness" as this rich, damp soil provided a very cushioned and cumbersome walking experience. By Sunday, conditions were much better. My first concern was would I be able to get back out. Winds were rather high Saturday, but settled down on Sunday.
